Excel 2007

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a user that imported data to an excel doc and when he tries to open it this is the message he gets: "name cannot be same as builtin name" Embedded is what the user is getting. I tried renaming the file, i tried putting a new name in the text field but nothing works. The file is saved as a .xls and not the newer .xlsx The user is using office 2007. You can't open the file, when you try to the name confilict windows opens. Do any of you have any ideas on this. error
