Good morning, 

 

I'm trying to open an excel 97-2003 File with Vba and get the following error:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/926430/you-are-requested-to-search-microsoft-office-online-...

 

Could you help me solve this problem? How to download the VBA converter pack?

 

Best Regards

Patrick

Are you unable to download the converter fomr the link you provided?

@Jan Karel Pieterse 

"The VBA Converter Pack is not included as a part of the Microsoft Office suites. At the top of this article, click View and request hotfix downloads"

 

I cant see this option. Am i wrong?

I see. I went to this link in the same article: https://archive.codeplex.com/?p=fixxl5modules the file is available for download, but was blocked by my Windows smartscreen filter.

@Jan Karel Pieterse 

Ok, but this is not the VBA Converter Pack.

Any other ideas how to open the file?

Look for someone who still has the Office 97 CD?

@Jan Karel Pieterse 

I can't believe that this is the only option :D. **bleep**..
