transfer excel97 file to W2000 briefcase

By hai ·
I am converting from W98se and Office 97 to W2000 OS with Office 97. I am able to transfer all the files from the old briefcase over to the new one except any file that is in excel format. Everytime I tried, I will get an error message telling me that the excel file can not be transfer.
Please help??????

transfer excel97 file to W2000 briefcase

How about this -
1. on the W98 system, open Excel
2. save the data in alternate formats like Excel 4 and WK4, but not plain text
3. copy those files to the W2000 system
4. open Excel on the W2000 system
5. import the files
6. see which one you have to do the least amount of re-formatting on
7. save that file
8. put it in the Briefcase

Hoping this helps...
