File is returned to me as a .dat. If I try to open it by clicking on it, it tries to open with Graphic Converter. I tried Ctrl+click and chose 'open with' and told it to open with Excel and it worked just fine. But I knew it was an Excel file. The people I originally sent the file to would not necessarily know what to use to open it (we're talking novice users).
