Excel VBA converter

New Contributor

Good morning, 


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


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


Best Regards

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

"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: 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?

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

@Patrick2506 So... I ran into this same issue today... and after much Googling, and hitting a brick wall with the Microsoft Support's webchat operative that I chatted to, you may be interested to review the files available here:
