Conversion Excel 97 to Excel 2003

Hi There,

I would like to convert Excel 97 files to excel 2003 I m 
using Save AS, but little bit confuse what type I have to 
choose "Microsoft Office Excel workbood (*.xls)" 
or "Microsoft Excel 97 - Excel 2003 & 5.0/95 workbook
(*.xls)". We will not use Office 97 anymore next few weeks.

Thank for your prompt response.

You shouldn't have to do anything. If you feel the need, just save as
microsoft excel workbook.xls

No conversion is necessary.  Format is the same from 97 through 2003.

With Excel 2003 in use just open the files and Save.  Microsoft Excel Workbook
will be the default.

Do not save as multi-versions.  The file-size will be much larger.

Converting from Pockect Excel to Excel XP
I setup a mileage sheet for my Pocket PC which has Pocket PC 2003 that came with Pocket Excel. When I formated the sheet some of the cells have boarders and others do not. There are a few cells that are irregular from the others, for example Column B3 - B34 all have a full boarder then in Column C the full border extends down all the way down to C35, there is then additional data with just a bottom boarder on D38. This leaves Cell A34-A38 with out any data or boarders at all and this is exactly how it locks on the Pocket PC. How ever when I transfer the excel file to my Home Computer...

Pasting Word table cell with paragraph markers into single Excel c
I have a Microsoft Word document that contains a table, each cell of which may contain paragraph markers. I need to copy and paste this table into Excel. However, whenever a cell from the Word table contains paragraph markers, rather than pasting the contents of the entire cell into a single cell in Excel, the paragraph markers are treated as delimiters, and the data is pasted into multiple Excel cells. If the cell from the table in Word contains one paragraph marker, then when I paste that cell to Excel, it pastes it into two cells. If it contains two paragraph markers, then it pa...
