Have you got Excel on your Vista machine? You won't be able to open a file without the program. If you have, right click on the file and choose Open With, then browse to the Excel executable file.

Ticked but no response? How did you sort this out? Please post so that others with the same problem can refer to this thread.

You can use OpenOffice to open files with an xls extension.
