Opening a .PRN File In Microsoft Excel 2007

  • 0

I’m using Micorsoft 2007 and trying to open a file with a .PRN extension. This is a comma-delimited file and created several years ago from our legacy system. In the past, I would open the files using the Wizard and I would open it as a comma-delimited file in Excel. The file today only opens in Wordpad of Notepad. I must have it open in Microsoft EXCEL 2007. Any ideas?

  1. save the .prn file to your desktop. Before opening, change the extension to .xls. The file can be delimited in Excel.
    In Windows 7, I have .prn associated with Excel, but it still does not open immediately. I have to change the extension first to .xls & then it open.
    So far this is the only way Ive been able to open this file in Windows 7.
