I have received an e-mail with an attachment and when I try to open it I get the message "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel".

I use M.I.Explorer to access the internet and Outlook Express to open my e-mail, can anyone tell me how to open a message .xls

A .xls extension is an Excel spreadsheet. If you don't have MS Office (which I guess not otherwise the attachment would open) then you can download an 'Excel viewer' from

click here

This will let you see the sheet(s)but not allow you to edit them.

Obviously GANDALF <|:-)> can type faster than me.

But I was distracted midway through typing by the offer of bananas and custard......(the dessert, not the cartoon)
