XLS files

  Mr "B" 19:28 01 May 2006

when i save a file off the internet which requires opening in microsoft works it brings up a message saying file may be corrupt and doesn't let me open it. This only happens when the file is an XLS file. Can anyone help me with this please as its important to me to be able to read these files, cheers.

try download and save the file not download and open. Then open works version of Excel and open the file from there, just a guess.

I think i've sussed it, it doesn't understan a XLS document, so when i open it up i just change the file type to an XL format which seems to ok. Cheers.
