Hey,

OpenExcel is an OpenXML SDK based class library (wrappers), and OpenXML SDK works only with Office 2007+ file formats. You can't create XLS files with OpenExcel/OpenXML SDK. You can only READ such files (from description: Also features an OLE DB-based reader for Excel 97-2003 files.). What you can do is creating Office 2007 file formats and let your users with older versions download the Office Compatability pack from: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en
