Export to excel problem

    Hi All,
    When exporting to excel after publishing any one of my reports to a web document, I get a excel file that#%92s filled with what looks like headers and encrypted code or data. Not at all the target report.
    The same reports do fine with exporting to PDF, CSV, html, etc.
    I am running win 2000, excel 2000 and I am testing a 120-day evaluation version of SQL Server 2000 reporting services.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Below is the mess of text that I exported from the bad excel file as a .txt file...

    MIME-Version: 1.0
    X-Document-Type: Workbook
    "Content-Type: multipart/related;boundary=""----=_NextPart_01C35DB7.4B204430"""

    This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

    Content-Type: text/html;
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
    Content-Location: file:///c:/Report.htm

    Content-Type: text/html
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
    Content-Location: file:///c:/Sheet1.htm

    Content-Type: text/css
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
    Content-Location: file:///c:/stylesheet.css

    I'm not sure why it errors, but can you check on levels of service pack on SQL & Excel.

    Microsoft say that they have engineered RS to only work with Excel 2003 and above

    they hope to get it to work with 2000 in their first service pack
