When exporting report to Excel using SSRS 2008, the format used to create the Excel file is the old one, with the .xls extension (recognized as Microsoft Office Excel 97-2003 Worksheet).

Or Excel 2007 - XLSX if you want to use the Office Compatability Pack that can be installed to take the xls files and turn them into xlsx files. You can download this program at

As for minimum supported Excel version (which I understand as "what is the oldest version of Excel that should be able to open the generated Excel files"), you should be able to open the files using Excel 97.  

But that is something which I've never tried myself (I don't have 97 anymore :-)).
Any newer version of Excel will also open the files.
