open file correctl;y.
Thankyou

Denise,

You should always try and open Excel files within Excel or from explorer.
Why would you want to open an Excel file in Word?

Hi

Go to My Computer and click on C drive. Go to Tools/Folder Options/File Type
tab. In that list there must be an entry for .xls If you click on Change,
you can set the program to open it with from there.

Sorry, maybe my question is not very clear, it isn't me trying to open an
Excel file in Word, but that when I try to open an Excel file, say as an
attachment in Outlook the default appears as Word not Excel. It is as though
the file is being read as a .doc file not .xls.
Thanks for your time
Regards
Denise
