Can`t open MS Works Spreadsheet

I have Win98 and IE6.Until recently I just had to click on the spreadsheet name which was saved in My Documents to open it. The other day I was confronted by a small window asking which program I wished to use to open the spreadsheet and I chose Notepad.Now when I click on the name in My Documents I am presented with a Notepad window full of letters,figures and small black squares which are meaningless to me.How do I get back to the original state without all this Notepad nonsense?Please enlighten in easy to follow steps.
Many thanks in advance.
