If the word document is coming over as a type .docx, just right click and change the extension to .doc then open it up in your word app.

Thanks to all for your helpful responses. Much appreciated!

The file that was sent to me that I am unable to open right now, is an Excel file and has the following suffix after the file name:

.nonp.xlsx

So I tried removing the x from the end, and the file still won't open in my 2010 M-soft Excel. Any suggestions?


Regarding enabling Macros, I searched and found instructions to do that, and I find that Macros are already enabled in my M-soft Office Excel 2010, even though I had never touched those settings before.

If you're still having problems after considering Gdetrailer's post, maybe try downloading LibreOffice, a free open source office suite very similar to Microsoft Office. Try opening the MS documents in LibreOffice and see if they work.


^^ This!

I downloaded LibreOffice and sure enough, it opened the Excel file that I had been thus far unable to open! Great tip. Thanks so much!

removing the x is not going to solve the problem. office 2007 and later should open .xlsx and .docx files with no issues. They can also create .docx or .xlsx files.

it's possible the .xlsx file is corrupted

According to MS your Office 2010 IS compatible and capable to read newer versions of Office including Office 365 which is a moving target that changes versions often.
Yep. I still have Office 2010 and have no problem with documents from people with newer versions.

Is Excel 2010 set on your PC as the program to handle .xlsx files? Like this:

Graphic not display?

are those documents coming from a non profit organization by chance?

I second LibreOffice ! It opens every Word, Excel and PowerPoint document I have ever received. Best of all, it is FREE !

If you run Excel VB script, you have to stay with Microsoft.
