I could not understand properly from your thread above about the file type you download from income tax site. Because forms downloaded from income tax site will be pdf file (sahaj itr-1 etc). But if you talking about the online filing excel tool provided by income tax site, then the excel file you downloaded may not be a problem but it could be compatibility issue. If you have office 2007/2010 installed in your computer try the following.

1. Go to your Control Panel
2. Open Add or Remove Programs
3. Look for Microsoft Office
4. Hit Change
5. Select Add or Remove Features
6. Unfold Office Shared Features
7. Set Visual Basic for Applications to run from your computer.
