    How do you access the SD card to delete files? I cannot work it out. I have some old excel files I want to delete.

    Install a file manager like 'EStrongs File Explorer' and use it for exploring your SD card and deleting this file :)

    Search mit EStrongs for ".xls"

    Ok, without an other app :)

    Use your PC's Windows Windows Explorer for the task.
    For that, set the phone's USB settings* to "Disk drive" and connect the phone to the PC via USB cable.

    *=Phone's Settings "Connect to PC"

    EDIT: For to disconnect don't forget on PC to unmount the phone like an USB stick :)
