Hi Dean!

Was this floppy formatted with drive space?

XP has no provision for reading these compressed discs, I think the only solution to try is to resave the document to a standard 1.4 HD floppy disc.

Hope this helps, Toxin.

In what way won't it open?

can't read the data?

spreadsheet locked?

format not recognised?

What exactly please.
