Service Pack 3 for Office 2003 now blocks all wk1 files from being opened in Excel 2003.  The information in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938810 is not helpful since OpenFileBlock is not in the registry.  How can I open wk1 file using excel 2003 after this patch is installed.

The solution offered did not work.  Even a similar solution to ad the string "Level1Remove" and then adding the value .wk1 did not work.  I was able to get it to work by adding keys - Security\FileOpenBlock and then setting the value to "0".
