…Well, it's time now to shift our focus over to migrating from Excel 2007 to 2010.…And again, the good news just as we…learned in Microsoft Word is the file formats have stayed the same.…We're still working with the .xlsx extension that was introduced in…Excel 2007.…That being said, there may be some new features that are not compatible and…of course, when working with older versions of Excel spreadsheets, there…is something called Compatibility mode that we are going to explore right now.…
So, let's start by going to the File tab, we will click there, then click Open,…and we will navigate to the chapter 3 folder of your exercise files,…check out the first 2.…They have the exact same name.…No obstacles on Cell 1.…But, as we move over to the Type column, you can see one is one of those older…formats with the .XLS extension, created in Excel '97 to 2003.…And then, we have the newer version.…If this was created in Excel 2010,…it may not be compatible with 2007 just because there are always new features and…functions becoming available in the newer version.…
