Re: How to set the default Excel version (All)
Welcome to Woody's Lounge!
To set Excel 2003 as default:
- Select Start | Run... (in Windows)
"C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice11Excel.exe" /regserver
- Press Enter or click OK.
For the other versions, do the same but adjust the path - check where exactly Excel.exe is installed for each of the versions. It's probably ...Office10 for Excel 2002 and ...Office for Excel 2000.
