Default quattro converter for Excel 2003

Someone has sent me some Quattro Pro 7.0 files that I need to open up. When
I had Excel 2000 before, it was as simple as downloading a converter and the
files opened up in Excel. However, for Excel 2003, I cannot find a converter
anywhere on the web site. Can someone point me to a converter or how I can
convert into Excel 2003 from Quattro. I have already tried the "Office
Conversion Pack" that the downloads site seems to direct me to.

Thanks,
Clark

To install the QP filters for Excel 2000 in Excel 2003 you have to make a
registry entry that leads the filter installer to believe you have Excel
2000 installed.

Run Regedit and create this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\9.0\C ommon\InstallRoot

(You'll probably have to create the 9.0 branch under Office and then Common
under it, and InstallRoot under Common)

Then create a new string item named "Path" in the right panel with the value
being the path to your Office 2003 installation like:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\"

Change the path to point to where you have Office 2003 installed if
different than the above.

Default quattro converter for Excel 2003

Hello

I saw your 2/9/07 posting. I'm something of a neophyte but need to convert
several *.wb3 files to Excel 2003. Would the instructions you left allow me
to do that? If so, I have a family member who's non-neophyte who could do it,
but I wanted to first check that your guidance applied.

Thanks.
