As you can open it (so can I with Office 2003) Have you tried File > Save as in Excel and saving as an earlier version of Excel?
It may be that there are features of this spreadsheet that are not supported by Excel 2000, unfortunately

Just a guess - his 2000 laptop doesn't have the import filters for 2003 files?

I presume you've tested opening other files on the lappy? It's not just a screwed Excel installation?

yup, that was the 3rd thing i tried Im uninstalling 2000 and installing 2003. needed to be done.
Ive had migraine for 2 days now, feels like my head wants to drop off

is the laptop properly updated? . probably going to be an update that will fix it, but i'm hopelessly out of my depth with office 2000 so feel free to ignore!
