Need Some help with Spreadsheets

I apologize if I am in the wrong thread. I am unfamiliar with windows 7 and I am having trouble with spreadsheets. Shouldn't it be the same? I will try to give you as much detail as I can. I go to my email, Click on the link to open a file that supposed to open in Spreadsheets, After i do that I allow everything it says. Then when it opens spreadsheet either its all blank or the words are not right. I tried it on a Different computer and it worked fine. Any ideas?

Welcome to sevenforums
Can you provide a little more info? ie. what office version/program do you have installed?
If you don't have a copy of Microsoft Office that you can install, you can use the free Microsoft Excel Viewer 2003 to simply open and read spreadsheets. Alternatively, the free Open Office Org is a full featured, free, open source office suite that also works well, and looks similar to MS Office.

What office suite are you using? Microsoft Office? If so, what year. Or OpenOffice?

Yes, Microsoft Works is an office suite.

Sorry about that, it's been so long since I've used Works that I'd forgotten that it also has a spreadsheet function.
In the email that you mentioned in your first post, you said that you clicked on the link to open a file in spreadsheets, does it show the file extension? (eg. .xls, .xlr etc.) If it doesn't, perhaps you could download and save the file to your desktop, right click it, and choose properties - next to "type of file" it will show the extension.

hmmm, ok, you're gonna need to install either the free excel viewer or open office org to open it. MS Works files have the .xlr extension according to this article, and can't open xls files unfortunately (AFAIK anyway)
