How do I set the default Excel application to Excel 2003?

I have a laptop with both Office 2003 & Office 2007.
I have a program (SAP) that has an export to Excel capability that only
works with Excel 2003. Everything worked fine until a few days ago when SAP
brough up Excel 2007 instead of 2003. I must have triggered something to
force Excel 2007 to be the default. I did use some of the other 2007 office
applications. My problem is that the export to Excel 2003 no longer works -
even if Excel 2003 is up and running. Is there something, short of
un-install Office 2007, I can do to fix this? Thanks, - Pat

Close all the versions of excel

Unregister the 2007 version.
windows start button|Run
"C:\yourpathtoexcel2007\excel.exe" /unregserver

Then register the xl2003 version:
windows start button|run
"c:\yourpathtoexcel2003\excel.exe" /regserver

The last version of excel registered (or installed) should be the default.

Sure.

You'll want to open xl2007 and then use whatever the equivalent of File|open is
<vbg> to open your file.
