Chapter 24. Excel Essentials > File Compatibility Issues

File Compatibility Issues

The standard binary format for an Excel 2003 workbook is the same as the format used for Excel 97, Excel 2000, and Excel 2002. In an office where all users have access to one of these relatively modern Excel versions, you should save and exchange files by using the Microsoft Excel Workbook format.

Excel 2003 is also capable of opening and saving worksheets and workbooks using the file formats of all older Excel versions, including 2.x, 3.0, 4.0, and 5.0/95. You can also open and save files in the formats used by Lotus 1-2-3 (Release 1.x, 2.x, 3, 4), Quattro Pro for MS-DOS, and all versions of dBASE. Using Excel, you can open worksheets created by Microsoft Works 2.0, but you cannot save a worksheet in that format.
