When I try to open an attachment it trys to open it in WORD which responds saying it does not reconise the file format.I have tried to download Excel Viewer 2003 to open them in but I get the message that I need a later version of Windows to download EV (I have 98SE and my ISP is AOL) Is there any other download I can try?

What's the file extension of the attachment?

Will that be .xls?

You need a copy of the program that generated the file (or a viewer as you are trying to obtain).

Is it an Excel file? i.e. it has the extension .xls.

Also, something may have happened to change your file associations so that Word is wrongly being called up to open the attachement (this is happened to a colleague just yesterday!).

Sorry if you knew all this!

I also know that a lot of the latest stuff wont work unless you have Win XP etc.

But I think you can get generic viewers that open many files...someone here you be able to tell you!
