Good day

I have Excel 2003 and it does not want to open .xls files.

Is there a converter type software out there to solve this.

Thank you

.xls files are the correct filetype for excel to open so it isn't a conversion issue, the files are either corrupted, not actually .xls files, or you have an issue with file association on your computer.

Can you clarify how you are actually trying to open the files and what happens (error messages etc.you are getting).

IF it is asking you to select a program to open it then the file you need to browse for is EXCEL.EXE in Program Files > Microsoft Office.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
