    A colleague is attempting to send me an excel file via Outlook (both 07). However, when I receive it, it has magically transformed into an .xps file, which is much like a .pdf or .tif file. As a result, I am unable to utilize the file as usual (insert formulas, format, link, etc.). Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

    You could ask your colleague to zip the workbook and to send the zip file.

    Excel 2007 can save files in several different formats including xps, you need to ask your friend to save the file in Excel 97-2003 workbook format (xls file), or if you have Excel 2007 hey can use the xlsx format.

    The friend is saving the file as an .xls file. After I have opened it on my end, it will only allow me to save it as a .xps file.
