I have office 2003 and office 2007 installed on my PC. When I open a
file(Excel, word , PP) It by default open MS office 2007. I don't want to
open it in MS office 2007 by default. I like top open all my files in office
2003 by default.

Please help!

Thanks

Close excel
windows start button|run
"C:\yourpathtoexcel2003\excel.exe" /regserver

reregistering xl2003 should make it the last version installed.

(Change that path to the actual path.)

I _think_ that
"C:\yourpathtomsword2003\winword.exe" /regserver
will work the same way--but you may want to verify that in an MSWord forum.

I don't use PPT enough to know.

Thanks for your help!!

I am able to register Excel.exe (2003) using following syntax:

"C:\yourpathtoexcel2003\excel.exe /regserver", It should all be in quotes.

MS excel 2003 will open.
I close the excel and then open excel file. It is still opening in MS Excel
2007.

Nope. The entire string should not be in quotes.

Only the "drive/path/excel.exe" should be in quotes.

And make sure that you actually use the correct drive and path.
