    Hello everyone,

    I have both MS Office 2003 and MS Office 2007 on my computer right now.
    When I try to open an Excel 2003 file, MS Office 2007 opens it directy.
    But I want to use MS Office 2003 application since it's easier.

    NOTE 1: I want to keep MS Office 2003 and 2007 at the same time in my
    computer.
    NOTE 2: "Open With" > Excel 2003 doesn't work.

    So, please help me as soon as possible without suggesting to remove MS
    Office 2007 from my computer!

    Thanks..

    I found it!
    We need to open a new Excel file from the directory below:
    Start > Programs > Microsoft Office > Microsoft Office Excel 2003
    then use Open from File..
    That's all..

  4. go to help in excel 2003 and select detect and repair. then double clicking
    an xls should open in excel 2003 instead of 2007.

  5. I'd try re-registering xl2003:

    Close Excel and
    Windows Start Button|Run
    "C:\your path to excel 2003\excel.exe" /regserver

    The /regserver stuff resets some of the windows registry to excel's factory
    defaults.

    And the last version of excel that is installed or re-registered should be the
    windows default action.
