Opening/linking .xlsx files
I have had trouble linking new .xlsx files to my existing .xls files. Excel
would shut down. So I started saving all my files in the old .xls format.
I recently created a new file using .xlsx, but when I try to reopen it,
Excel shuts down.
Are you able to open Excel 2007?

other cells can be editted?

You can't, the file format changes twice since version 4. You need a newer
