(S)He is saying that the current version (Excel Viewer 2003) only works in 2000/XP. The version (s)he is looking for and which you quoted 97/2000) is not available for download at Microsoft's site.

Unfortunately, I don't have it either.

I notice you have PowerPoint Viewer 2003 & 2007 which is good!

MS is going to discontinue PowerPoint & Excel Viewers versions 2003 as stated on their download pages. I guess they are wanting it pernamently replaced with the 2007 versions. Even though the 2007 version seems backwards compatible up to 97, the file download sizes are rediculously larger (eg. 25MB for 2007 PowerPoint, or 1MB for 2003 PowerPoint Viewers... or 9MB for Excel 2003 ... 75MB for Excel 2007 Viewers... and 2003 Viewer can view anything between 97 to 2003). So I reckon we should archive/store the 2003 versions since they are still useful for many people/companies who still like to use Office 97-2003 versions.

Excel Viewer 2003 http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/downloads/CD010226281033.aspx
Word Viewer 2003 http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/downloads/CD010226251033.aspx

Thanks gaffer.

Just like I said. It already happened to 97/2000 version of MS Office Viewers. Now it's going to happen to the 2003 Viewers - being replaced by the 2008 Viewers.

It's no use giving us links to the Microsoft website. This thread is a warning of a inevitable discontinuation from the official sites. And yeah, there's some personal users sites hosting the files, but ... for how long?

So what happen to the oldversion.com archiving? We need to sort something out.

At least upgrade this forums to allow attachments.
