Hi. I am having trouble opening xlsx with XL 2003. I have down loaded & installed the the FFconverter.exe.

I can open docx in Word but not xlsx. I downloaded & installed Openoffice 3.4 & this opens xlsx & then I saved it as xls & worked fine. I also opened the file with Kingsoft Office on my Android phone & saved it as well & also worked fine.

Any suggestions as to why my uptodate xl2003 cannot open the files?

Cheers

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.

Thanks for this but I have downloaded & installed the Compatibility Pack (FileFormatconverter.exe).
