Tell your friend to follow the following steps while saving-

Alt+F-> Save As-> Microsoft 97-2003 Workbook

This is the compaatible mode. :)

or better yet just change the option on office 2007 to always save in doc instead of docx and xls instead of xlxs

You can download the Office 2007 Compatibility pack. Allows office 2003 to read offfice 22007 formats (Word, Excel, Powerpoint but not access)
