Hi

I have both excel 2003 and 2007 installed on my computer. Excel 2007 became the default when I installed it. That was until about an hour ago when it suddenly changed and now excel 2003 is the default.

Does anybody know how I change this back to have all excel files open with excel 2007 as the default ?

Thanks

Excel Facts

Pivot Table Drill Down
Double-click any number in a pivot table to create a new report showing all detail rows that make up that number
Start-Run, enter:
Code:
"C:\Program Files\microsoft office\office12\excel.exe" /regserver
(adjusting path if required) and press enter. That should reset the registry entries.

Hi

Thanks Rorya

I tried that . . . But it did not work.

Then you may need to go into the File Types tab in Tools-Folder Options in explorer and change the settings for all the .xl* file types manually, so they open with version 12.

Thanks Rorya

Changing the "Opens with" Option worked
