Bring active cell back into view
Start at A1 and select to A9999 while writing a formula, you can't see A1 anymore. Press Ctrl+Backspace to bring active cell into view.

You need to do this in Control Panel, look for Default Programs (or something similar) and set .xls and any other compatible file extension you want to open with Excel 2003.
