Trados 2009 rejects my Excel files claiming Excel 2003 is not installed, but I have Excel 2013!

It says I should convert my files from .xls to .xlsx but I don't know how to do that.

Can somebody please help?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Converting files from .xls to .xlsx Mar 8, 2013

Hi Elodie,

I have Office 2010 so what I usually do is save a .xls file by using the "Save As" option in the .xlsx format.

However, recently Trados 2009 rejected one of my .xlsx files also....
So I don't know if it will help..

Please let me know if it doesicon_smile.gif

Hope this helps..
