This specific document is in excel. Is there something different for documents created in Word?

Expert:  Chris L. replied 4 years ago.
No, there actually should no no difference from documents created on windows 7 to windows 8. The difference is in the office program. Do you know which version of office you used to create the excel file, it could be 2003, 2007, or maybe 2010?

Also do you have excel installed on the windows 8 computer?

It was installed last year so it is probably Windows 10 and yes Excel is loaded on this computer.
