Opening files in Public Folders

I have an Excel file stored in a public folder that when double clicked opens up within a new browser window.  How can I set this to open in Excel on the local PC?

The excel file is not within an "email" post, it's simply been dragged and dropped in the PF.

Thanks

Sorry, I should add that this only happens via OWA, not in Outlook client.  Using Office 2003 and Exchange 2003.

That is a client side setting.
This KB article tells you what to change. You will have to adjust the version information listed to 11 for Office 2003.

Thanks - that's a step forward, however it only opens as read-only.  What if you need to make changes and save back to the PF as you can in the Outlook Client?

I don't think you can do that through OWA.
You would have to open the file, do whatever needs doing, save it locally then reattach it.
