Download problem from SAP in excel-2007



While downloaidng any report from sap such as t-code IH08,IW39 or IW29 etc I am facing

problem as below-

From output screen , I am going to List-save-file-spreadsheet as my requirement is to

get the output data in Microsoft office excel 2007.First problem is even though I have

selected as spreadsheet ,but still by default file name format is coming as .txt that is

in text format.After that I need to change this format into XLS format every time by giving

the file name which is killing my time unnecessarily.

Second problem is after downloading the file in desktop when I am opening the file everytime

system is giving message as "The file you are trying to open ,"test.XLS",( here test is the file

name) is in different format than specified by the file extension.Verify that the file is not

corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file .Do you want to open the file

now?"How can I avoid this message?

Is there any option available to directly download in MS office excel-2007 ?Please guide me.

Thanks in advance
