95 and 97 problem

For some unknown reason there is Excel 95 and 97 on this 
pc.When i double click on an Excel file, the pc defaults 
to the 95 program (Which incidently doesn't work properly).

So my question is how do i get the pc to default to 97.

Cheers Craig

Craig,

Have a look at Windows Help.

From Windows 2000 Help  (Index under Programs Associating with File Types)

To change which program starts when you open a file

In My Computer or Windows Explorer, on the View menu, click Folder Options.
Click the File Types tab.
In the list of file types, click the one you want to change.
Click Edit.
In Actions, click Open.
Click Edit.
In Application used to perform action, enter the program you want to use to
open files that have this extension, and then click OK.
Note
The settings for selected file types are shown in File type details.

Excel 97 Select Behavior
When you open Excel 97 running on Windows 95, you can type in cells and hit enter or tab and all is well. However, as soon as you SELECT a cell by clicking in it, the mouse appears to be in select and drag mode. You cannot click within another cell and as you move the mouse around, adjacent cells are selected. There is an icon of a paper next to a white arrow. The only way Excel and even be closed from here is by using the Task Manager. This makes Excel unusable. Is there anything we can try short of rebuilding the machine?

Fill-In Form Problem
I have a number of fill-in forms I created with Word 2000. Many have dropdown boxes that contain a number of responses as well as a "blank" option (created using blank spaces) to allow us to 'clear' the field if nothing has to be filled in. We recently switched to Word 2007 and we have been unable to select the "blank" entry in the dropdowns, therefore, we can no longer clear a field if no entry is required. Am I overlooking something? If you use the legacy dropdown fields in a protected form then Word 2007 will certainly allow a blank entry consi...

Pub 97 to Pub 2003
I am wanting to upgrade my Pub 98 to work with a friend who uses Pub 2000. If I get the current Pub 2003, can she save as to 2003 and email to me or will she have to upgrade to 2003? Forgive me for phrasing it this way but how would Publisher 2000 be able to save as a file for a version of the program that wasn't developed yet? You can open her 2000 files. You can save as Pub 2000 for her to be able to open it.
