Help with Royalty Reports

I noticed that starting in August the downloadable Royalty Reports are now saved in Microsoft Office Excel Worksheet format .
Previously, the reports were in MS Office Excel 97-2003 Worksheet format and I had no problem viewing them, but now I'm unable to view them.

What version of MS Excel do I need to read the reports?

Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

Try downloading Microsoft Excel Viewer. I don't have Excel on my computer, so I use that. It's free, and it works fine for me.

You can also download, for free, OpenOffice. The product contains a word processor (very capable), a spreadsheet (that can read these files) and a couple of other applications.

But if you're going to use OpenOffice to write ebooks, you'll also need something like Calibre to tweak the result just a bit. (Or, at least, I found that to be the case.)
