    When I get sent an excel file (.xls) I open the attachment, however if I choose Open it doesn't let me format the cells but does let me write and save. If I choose Open and Remove Macros it opens in Read Only however it does let me save whatever changes I've made but still won't let me format the cells. Is there a way to format the cells of these files that get sent to me via Entourage. Even if I save them to desktop I get the same results. Any help would be great.
    Thanks.:confused:

    Do you know what version of Excel was used by whoever created the file and sent it to you?

    What kind of formatting are you trying to do but aren't able to do?
