Since MS took out the ability to save to DBF format from Excel 2007, your choices are:

1) convert to an intermediate format like csv, which a dBase program may be able to read, as mredfelix suggests
2) use a converter like DBFView, as the link in mredfelix's post provides
3) use an earlier version of Excel that has the compatibility pack allowing it to open .xlsx files
