I have a workbook that HAS to run excel 2003 because of 2010 not being able to import the proper file extension any longer. I have an excel menu with a lot of hyperlinks to different workbooks that run fine on 2010. I need a code to open an excel 2003 file within excel 2003 when either a hyperlink is press or using a code that when a cell is selected it opens this workbook in excel 2003.

I am running excel 2010 with excel 2003 loaded as well

The spreadsheet name is: MASTERREV
File Location: P:\Lab Folder\Master Spreadsheet/MASTERREV
Cell this link will be on: J10

So just to summerize, I want to be able to open my Menu in 2010 click on cell J10 and it open up MASTERREV in Excel 2003.

If anyone needs more information I would be happy to provide it. I open to all suggestion
