We have an issue that if we create a report in exl2k, it will open and display fine in excel. If after we open the file, we try to save the xls report, the filename is "abc.xls" and the save as type is web page (*.htm; *.html). If we do a save as soon as prompted instead of an open and then a save, the problem does not seem to happen. We need to be able to save either way. This happens even with simple code like: TABLE FILE CAR PRINT CAR MODEL SEATS BY COUNTRY ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K END
Is there a way to get exl2k to recognize the file as xls instead of htm/html or to fix this problem?

1) Click on MyComputer 2) Folder Options 3) File Types 4) See if XHT/XLS is in the list 5) If yes, Click CHANGE 6) If no, click NEW, Input XHT/XLS, Click OK, Click CHANGE 7) Select Microsoft Excel 8) VOILA!!!!
We realize that we can do that, but we have thousands of customers and they won't remember/notice to make the change (they didn't need to make the change when we were just on excel and we're just converting them to exl2k). So we were trying to figure out a way to fix the problem so that they don't have to manually change it each time.

see if your sysadmin can invoke some global change- maybe in group poliy editor (not sure im no sysadmin) or one of the other admin tools to automatically apply toms suggestion to every machine....

Did anyone ever get a fix to this? I have a few reports being sent out to several customers. Most of them remember to check the save format but some still forget and we always have to ask them to resave the file. A fix to this issue would be very helpful and save a lot of time on going back and forth.
