Unable to save a report that was exported from QuickBooks Desktop to Excel 2007

After exporting a report from QuickBooks Desktop to Excel 2007, when you attempt to save the report the options become grayed out.  Afterwards, you can no longer type into that report or modify it in any way.

How to fix it
You may see this problem if you're using a trial version of Microsoft Excel. In a trial version, at the top of the screen above the ribbon, you will see Excel 2007 (Trial).
A full version of Excel is necessary to save reports that are exported from QuickBooks. It is possible to export the report as a "comma separated values" (csv) file, which will then open in Excel.
