excel 2000 over 2007


C

colin 007

I have Office 2000 loaded onto my PC, i also have a trial version of 2007. i
need to keep 2007 for the odd occassion that an excel 2007 spreadsheet is
sent to me but as it is only a trial version many features cannot be used.
When i get sent excel spreadsheets in emails 99% are in 98 or 2000 format. i
want to open them immediately in excel 2000 but 2007 defaults in and i ant to
change this so that it defaults to 2000 opening 2007 only when i get a
spreadsheet produced in 2007 version - can anyone tell me how to default to
2000 instead of 2007 when opening an excel email attachment

Sorry for the double post. When I clicked the Post button it said Service
Unavailable so I tried again.

My thanks to those taking the trouble to respond to my problem - they are
useful and i will look at them shortly, but it does not really tell me how to
get excel 2000 to open an attachment ahead of 2007without deleting 2007 trial
version.

If you want to open .xls files with Excel 2000 and .xslx files with 2007 you
need to
associate the .xls files with Excel 2000.

To change which program starts when you double-click a file, follow these
steps:
Open Windows Explorer by right-clicking the Start button, and then click
Explore.
Click a folder that contains a file of the type that you want Windows to
open in a program that you select.
Right-click the file and, depending on the programs installed on your
computer, complete one of the following steps:
Click Open With to choose the program that you want.
Point to Open With, and then click Choose Program to choose the program that
you want.
The Open With dialog box is displayed. Use one of the following methods to
select the program that you want to use for this file type:
In the Programs list, click the program that you want to use.
Click Browse, locate and then click the program that you want to use, and
then click Open.
Click Look for the appropriate program on the Web to browse the Internet for
the program that you want to use.
Click to select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of
file check box if it is not selected.
Click OK.

Note From now on, Windows XP will open all files that have this file name
extension in the program that you selected. To change this, you must follow
these steps again and associate a different program with this file name
extension.

With the compatibility package installed there is no need for the 2007
trial version.
