Hi, Guys.

Sometimes I receive attachments in format ending .xlsx . My PC does not open it. Which free program you would recommend to download to open it. I have Windows XP on my PC.

I would appreciate some suggestions. Thanks.

xlsx is the extension of excel 2007 and excel 2010 , you can open it with one of them if you can install office 2007 or 2010 on your PC.
In case you are using another version (office 2002 or 2003 or ...), you can simply convert the xlsx to xls using the online converter :

Easy way. If this is an attachment that you get from the same person regularly then ask them to send it to you as an xls not xlsx. They can do that easily and then you can use it.

Xhi - the OP is yet to say if they have any version of MS Office. And asks about free downloads. Hence the link in my previous post.
