xls opening in the wrong application

I have a group of end-users running Office 2003. We have a web app that offers a link to a spreadsheet version of any report. The problem is that when the Office 2003 people click that link, instead of opening in Excel, it opens in IE. How can I force it to open in Excel?

The web app is classic ASP.
