I'm trying to open a .tab file and need it to be opened in Excel. When it shows me the options for what to open it with it will not give me Excel as an option. Even when I browse I can't get Excel as an option.

When I go into Excel and navigate to the folder the file is in, it doesn't even display the file as something I can open.

What can I do open the file?

When you are searching for a file to open, change the search from "All Excel Files" to "All Files".

Hope that works!
