Are you aware that Microsoft will no longer support Office 2003 after April 8, 2014. So you will lose support & updates on Excel 2003, which could make it very vulnerable to virus attacks etc..

Is the wk4 file format used in saving Lotus 123 spreadsheets?. With the above in mind is there any way, you can change over to the fully Excel system, as it would seem you are getting forced into a corner & have to eventually change over.

Whether Excel 2003 will work alongside Office 2010 is something I don't know.

The system that will be using excel is well protected. Secondly system upgrade is a bit long term issue which we will consider a bit later and certainly before April 2014.

Yes you can install Excel 2003 side-by-side with Office/Excel 2010.

It is recommended that you install in version order. That meas Excel 2003 first then the Office 2010 apps.

If it were me and have Windows 7 pro or higher, I would install Excel 2003 in XP mode.
