How to set excel files to open in excel and not in browser?

  Asked By: Cesar    Date: Jan 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2868

I'm very new to sharepoint and we're having difficulties with some
of our excel files that use macros. When a user with Office 2000 or
older opens an excel file containing an macro from a document
library it opens within the browser and the user receives a error
regarding an object path used by the macro. When a user with Office
2003 opens the same excel file it opens within Excel and the user
does not receive any errors and the macro works.

To solve this issue we'd like to find a way to make all office
documents open with the associated office application and not within
the browser. Does anyone know how we can accomplish this?

By the way we're using SharePoint 2003.

Your help is truly appreciated.
