MS Office Excel, opening email XLS file

  cagey 22:52 21 Jul 2008

My daughter has just installed MS Office on her Vista laptop. She tried to open an email attachment which is an Excel file with a xls suffix, but gets a report that Adobe Reader cannot open this file. She uses Yahoo email, which I can't see any way of saving the file as you can in Windows Mail. Can anyone help please?

You need to download the attachment to open it with MS Office Excel.
Download it with Outlook click here

I'll pass on this advice tomorrow, but isn't there some way you can open it direct from Yahoo email?

Or maybe there is some setting in Yahoo to tell it to open Excel for that file type instead of Adobe Reader. (not used it so not sure about that)
