Tim, sorry I missed your response last Saturday-- forgot which forum I posted on. I have followed your suggestion (s) and still can't open the XML file. I also took another suggestion after yours and installed a free XML reader off Cnet. It doesn't work either. I failed to mention that I am using Office 2007 (ancient, yes) but it seems that some of the readers ofered on Cnet accommodate older versions of Office. Any further ideas? Obviously, I am a novice, at best, with computers.

What other software are you using? If you want to set Excel as the default for opening an XML in Win 10, you first have to tell Excel it's okay to do that. In office 365, go to FILE, OPTIONS, GENERAL and scroll to the bottom. There, you can set default file type. Select the XML file types you want to open using EXCEL as your default.
