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

"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.

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?
