Whilst writting a word document i opened a excel doc to confirm some information. I then closed the excel doc and continued with my work.
After completing the word doc and saving it, i went back to the excel document only to find that it was now a word doc, not excel as it was. As a result it wont open..... can you help???

Huh? Never come across this.

You could try: find the (ex) Excel file in Windows Explorer, Right click and select Ioen with, Choose program. Select Microsoft Excel, make sure "Always use the selected program to open this type of file is NOT ticked. Click OK.

That is for Windows XP. It is similar in other Windows versions.

Should read "Open With" !

If using W98 I think you need to hold down the shift key while right clicking.
