Default converter tool to convert XL 2007 files to XL 2003 files

Has anyone had any luck with this conversion tool that MSFT offers?

Long story short: I created a number of XL 2007 files, had to uninstall
Office 2007 from my machine and revert back to Office 2003.

So I want to open the XL 07 files and convert them to XL 03 format. The
conversion tool though isn't working. I get a message saying XL 03 doesn't
recognize the file format.

Wondering if anyone out there has had a similar problem.

Thanks,

Dave

Never tried it Dave, but 2007 is available for download now, pre-release.
You could download that and save them as 2003 files.

Ah, well, that's why I had to uninstall it. I installed the pre-release
version, then had to do a system restore for an unrelated reason, tried to
re-install the pre-release version, got a message saying my trial had ended,
and then tried just to buy the damn thing. But you can't buy office 2007
till Jan 31. 2007.

Hence, the converter tool...

Well, if you don't have many, and it would just be a case of loading and
re-saving, and it doesn't contain confidential info (that's a lot of
conditions <g), you could mail them to me and I could do it for you.

There's the rub.

The file in question does have confidential info. I'm trying to locate
someone I know who has office 2007 installed so I can just sit at their
computer and convert the damn thing.

Thanks though.

It occurs to me that the converter may not work if all the Office 2003
security updates are not installed. Seeing that I just re-installed it
yesterday that may be the issue.

Will try that tonight and see where it gets me.

Default converter tool to convert XL 2007 files to XL 2003 files

Just want to update this post: my supposition below is true. In order
to get the Office 2007 converter to work in Office 2003, ALL security
updates have to have been installed.
