I know one can open dBase IV files with Excel 2007, but, unfortunately, you cannot save files to that format. It is only possible in Excel 2003.

Is there an add-in one can use in Excel 2007?

I have found an add-in that can do the conversion:…. I will try it on Monday on my work computer which has Excel 2007. – systemovich Sep 6 '09 at 10:30

Seems to be various converters to/from dBase here: dbfView

I see options for Excel 2003, 2007, and CSV there.

I doubt this. But you can export to, let's say, csv file, and then use converter to get your dBase file. I believe getting CSV (or other open format) to dBase converter is much easier than trying to convert directly to dBase from Excel.

@Andrejs, Thanks alot. Could you perhaps recommend such a converter? – systemovich Sep 3 '09 at 15:46
Try the one mentioned by Sanjay Sheth. – alex Sep 3 '09 at 18:00

I have found an add-in for Excel 2007 that does the job, on this blog. The add-in is called SaveDBF.
