Convert Excel 2007

  The Sweeper 12:56 02 Mar 09

I have a PC with Excel 2000 and have some Excel 2007 files that I wish to work on. I have downloaded the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack but when I try to open a file I get an error message 'file failed to convert'. Any solutions?

To use the Compatibility Pack with Office 2000 requires that you have Service Pack 3 installed. Does your Office 2000 have SP3?

Thanks mgmcc. No it doesnt and when I try and install the Office 2000 SP3 I get an error message stating that 'the expected version of your product was not found on your system'.

I don't know for certain, but SP3 for Office 2000 may not be a "cumulative" service pack. In other words, you may have to install SP1, then SP2 and finally SP3.

Thanks mgmcc. You may well be right and good thinking. I'm off on holiday later so will give your thoughts a try on my return. Thanks again.
