Excel/Excel conversion


I have an excel file that I had on an old computer that crashed and when I try to put that file into a newer version of excel it won't run without having problems.  The code takes data and saves the data daily and prints out a daily report.  The problem I am having is with one part of accessing the data by a selected date.  I am unable to send the excel file or the data file that it is looking for.  I could send if you need to a corresponding address. I would appreciate any help in this matter.  Thank you.

I can't help without seeing the file(s) - send to me if you can at bobumlas@hotmail.com, use subject of "AllExpertsQ" and repeat the issue.
