    Unhappy Excel 2003 and 2007 Compatability Problems

    Ive got complete office 2007 and excel 2003 installed on the same computer.
    1. i need 2007 for some of the advanced features
    2. i need 2003 for the reporting program i use.

    the trouble i'm getting is that i want everything to open in excel 2007 by default.
    i know i sounds simple, folder options OR right-click properties,
    but this doesn't work,

    if i set it to the excel 2007 logo (right-click properties) it wont open at all.
    i get the hour glass and nothing.

    however if i open 2007 first and then open a .xls it sometimes opens.

    is there anything that can change these to default OR any other help


    Please

    which order did you install versions?

    If you install 2003 then 2007 it should default to opening 2007 for all xl* files
