If you need additional help, there is more information about .zip files from Microsoft support:
“Zipped (compressed) files take up less storage space and can be transferred to other computers more quickly than uncompressed files. In Windows, you work with zipped files and folders in the same way that you work with uncompressed files and folders. Combine several files into a single zipped folder to more easily share a group of files.”
After you have downloaded your file and opened up the spreadsheet, read below to continue.
