excel attachments

confused

we have excel 2003 - we received an attachment in excel 2007-after opening it
we can no longer just "open " any excel attachments-we have to "save" it to a
disk. some setting must have changed..does anyone have any ideas on how to
resolve this issue. It was great to be able to just click on "open" and have
it work.

You need to get the person who is sending you the 2007 file to save it as a
2003 file.

This way, when it comes to you, it will already be in the format that you
need (2003).

If you do the above I think that your problem will be resolved.

Please hit Yes if my comments have helped.

Thanks.

We tried resending the attachment in 2003--when i try to open any excel
attachment and I click on "OPEN" I get a box > Windows cannot find
C:\Documents & settings|local settings\temporary internet files. I can only
open the attachments by "Save to Disk". We have always been able to just
click on "OPEN" and then read the file. I wonder if there is a setting to
get back to where we can just "OPEN" the attachment?

Thnaks again for any help or suggestions to resolve this issue!

I had the same problem but you go and download a Excel converter that you can
open the 2007 in and just copy and paste it into your 2003 if needed.
