I have Microsoft Excel 2007 when I receive documents in the XLSX format, I am unable to make changes etc. to the document.

Is there a download necessary to enable these documents to be changed etc?

thanks

Since .xlsx is the default file format for Excel 2007 and 2010 this is not likely to be the problem. Are the files coming to you 'write-protected' ? If they are, you normally have two options: one is to change the attributes to 'Read / Write' which I would do using Windows Explorer, or to save a copy of the file which you will then be able to edit.

 

There are other protections available in Excel 2007 to preserve the integrity of files but to change these you would have to consult with the sender.

Chris is right. Xlsx is available for Excel 2007 and 2010. Another problem may be the mode for your document. If your document is Read-only mode, definitely, you can not make changes for that document.

If the document is set to be Read Only in Excel, then there will be a warning that will pop up to that effect when you open the file.
