Right click on the file's you want to open and select "start with" and select 2003 and place a tick in the box to use this program always for this type of file.

1. Select any excel file and right click on it.
2. Select on Properties
3. Look for the option where it says - Open With.
4. Click on the Change button next to it.
5. In the next pop-up window, select Excel 2003 from the list.
6. Make sure to check off the "Always use...." textbox.
