Excel 2007 on your PC, because you will need this to open the attchments...

Save the attachment somewhere...
Navigate to the attachment...
Right click on the attchment...
Choose "Open with..."...
Select "Choose programme"...
Choose Excel...
Tick the box, bottom left, that says, "Always use this blah blah..."
Click "OK"

Excel should now open the attachment, and in future always open .xlsx file.

Hope this helps/works.

my method is for XP... I didn't realise Vista was so different!

Refer to Sea Urchin's link if you have Vista...

(But you still need to save the attachment first!)
