Name conflict excel 2007

Last Modified: 2009-09-23
I am trying to open an old (2000) excel document in excel 2007.  I get and error "One or more invalid names were detected in this workbook.  Those invalid names have been changed to #REF!"  After I click OK, I get a Name Conflict box.  In it, it says "Name cannot be the same as built-in name."  Then it says Old Name: Print_Area  then it asks me to enter a new name.  When I try to enter something in the box it does nothing.

Any ideas?
