xls = excel
right click the xls, select "open with" scroll down to excel 2010 and tick the box to say always use this.
This will always open xls files with ecel 2010
If you only want this one file opened with excel 2010 then open excel and choose file open, browse to the file and then do a file - save as and select excel 2010 as the version.

However if the file is really corrupt then I'm not sure how you will open it at all

Try opening teh file on an old 2003 machine and ensure it is saved as 97-2003 xls, (or doc as appropriate).  It is possible they were saved using the compatability application.

Then retry in 2010.

Are you able to create a document using MS Office 2010 (either excel or word document) ?
If that is successful, then R u able to open the word document in MS Office 2003 first ?
If it is opening then, try to save it again & open it in MS Office 2010 again. It should solve.
If not then reinstall MS Office 2010

perhaps the filters in 2010 have become corrupted - a reinstall of 2010 should fix - can you open them on another pc with 2010?

whoa easy there.... reinstall of the application is last resort.
Try to open elsewhere, create a 2003 version and then attempt to open in 2010, then maybe try a repair... if all that fails then perhaps consider reinstalling the application.

But not if we are talking single document single problem though

>>> even if the file was saved in compatability application office 2010 shuld open the file

Not so in practice ... and even if it does in what way would the activity be negative.  It establishes that the document can be opened ... or not in the native version,  before it is re-tried (post save) in 2010.
