ok, here it goes. i am taking online classes. my payroll class has a website i am to go to and download some end of chapter templates which are excel. i do not have excel i dont think but i can open them in wordperfect and actually add to them like you would in excel. when i save it and send it to my advisor she cannot open or it is not right. i did find this afternoon that i could save as: my assignment name and file type i can save as excel 3.0 or 4.0. but when i went back to look at assignment only the first part of assignment was there. does anyone have any suggestions.

Have you checked out OpenOffice ?

It is a free office suite that has a program that can handle excel files. You will have to save them as the excel filetypes as well. It will probably be able to handle the excel templates just fine.

You could also send an email over to your professor. Online course teachers have to deal with this kind of thing a lot

I would imagine you should save it as the same format the template is in. Again, you should ask your professor these questions. I'm sure you'll get better help that way.

In OpenOffice's Spreadsheet program (Calc), you can choose to save it in (.xls) format. This is the traditional format Excel files are saved in. I think it's called "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP (.xls)".

Thanks NeoneFx :) and 270pam the suggestion is correct.
Excel would be xls and is the most popular to use so your instructor should have no problem viewing the file with Microsoft Excel or Open Office.
