Excel Folders created in Office 2000

  Olly 08:38 14 Oct 06

When I retired I transferred all my documents to a new computer running Windows XP/2. I now want to access the documents but find that because I have not got Excel I cannot open them. I have tried a trial run of Office 2003 but still cannot unlock these files. Is there any way round this or buying a new Office suite answer my problem

Is Office 2003 (Excel 2003) actually unable to open the files or are you "denied access" to the files?

If the files were stored in "My Documents" in another PC running XP, you may need to "Take Ownership" of the files before being able to access them, per this Microsoft article - click here
