Please teach me how?

Many Thanks in advance.

Hi VitorHugo,

I'm using windows XP in my PC and Office 2003 for my xls reference. Will I need to download 2007 PIA for me to copy/saveas the xlsx file to xls format?

will it not do conflication in the 2003 PIA which is in my computer and is being use by my program ?

No Alan as for the solution provided, it only changes the file extension... Dont install it.
