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.

401k Contributions / Conversion to Quicken
After conversion from MS2008 to Quicken 2010: All of my 401k contributions show up as pretax transfers out of my paycheck (as they should); however, they are being included in my taxable income. I notice that Quicken has a category _401Contrib, but if I change the transfer category, then the deposit into my 401k account disappears. Has anyone else come across this and figured out what to do to resolve? Thanks.

Outlook 2003
We're on Exchange 2003 and have started rolling out Outlook 2003 in place of Outlook 2000. In Outlook 2003 by default all folders come up grouped by day and with solid lines between the messages. Everyone hates these "features" and has made a point of telling me so. Yes, each individual folder can be changed back through the user interface but that's a non-solution for 100 users that have an average of 25 folders each plus the 50 or so public folders as well.
