    Default Excel file compatibility

    Hi,
    I have an old workbook that I am trying to open in Excel. I get several error messages when I open it, and it seems to alter the formulas in the workbook once it is 'converted'.
    How can I open a 97 Excel workbook in a 2010 version of Excel without having the document changed or converted?

    Hi Joe,
    I have had a read through that link, and I believe that my file may still be altered, and since each page is linked with several formulae throughout the workbook, the program will end up being corrupted. Ideally, I would like to install a 97 version of excel back onto my desktop. Is there anywhere that I may be able to source this??
    Thanks :-)

    Unfortunately, this is not a 97 Excel download, and it doesn't change the issues that I am having.....

    Does this kit from Ebay have the 97 Excel disk included in it?
