EXCEL 2013 - Compatibility message per loss of fidelity

Hello,
I just installed a new Win8.1 computer containing Office 2013. Previously I was using Office 2003, so my Word docs were .doc and excel files .xls.

I opened a workbook from 2003. When saving it, using the Compatibility option I converted to 2013.

Now, when I save the workbook I get the following message (see screenshot). FWIW, this workbook has multiple worksheets.

I'm not sure why I'd get this msg since I'm going from an OLDER version to a NEWER version. I'd expect to see it when going the other way.

So I guess I need to know why I'm getting the msg, and how to identify where in the workbook the problem is located.

Thanks,
Steve

You can uncheck the warning. But you are wrong, because you are converting from a newer (in memory) to an older version, and losing features that way.

OK, the, I wasn't aware of that and you're right it's still an XLS file.
How would I save it then as a 2013 file?
Thanks.

Use Save As, and choose xlsx as file type.
