How do I open an XLSX file?
I've never heard of that format before; I click on it and the message comes up- "Cannot open. Windows needs to know which program created it", but I haven't a clue.

XLSX files are Microsoft Office Excel 2007 or newer files. If you are using an earlier version of Microsoft Office, you will need to download and install the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack.

And while we're on this, I'd recommend you maybe upgrade your version of Office to either 2007 or 2010. They have more features and some of those introduced in 2007 are enhanced in 2010. Just a thought.

I agree with Andrew. What andrew provided is a permanent solution in case you don't have internet access.
