    You save it as a .xls file instead. Older versions of Office generally can't open the new x-ending files (.xlsx .docx .pptx).

    There is an export option in Excel 2008 to save in a compatible format. There are also third-party programs you can google for that convert between the two. Just changing the filename on a file you already have won't be enough.
