    Hi tech(once)

    Excel, a spreadsheet program uses the file type .xls. Do you have Excel installed?

    If not, you can download an Excel viewer here:

    Let us know if that works for you or not.

    I don't have Excel installed and this download's application list only includes Excel software. I do have a spreadsheet program though in Microsoft Works. Does that help me any?

    Yes, the spreadsheet program in Microsoft Works should be able to open Any Excel (.xl*) files.

    Save the attachment to the Desktop.
    Right click on the file and select Open With then browse to the Microsoft Works spreadsheet executable and select it.

    Which version of Works do you have?

    I don't have Microsoft Works to find the executable for the spreadsheet program.
    To locate it, first create a file using the Microsoft Works spreadsheet program. Save the file to the Desktop then Right click the file and mouse over Open With. The name of the program used to open the Microsoft Works spreadsheet file should appear.
