This file was created by a newer version of Tableau.  
Please contact Tableau Software to upgrade your software. 

Everyone in the office is using the same Tableau version though.

Confirm your server is the same version as your desktop. Click in the upper right corner and select About Tableau Server.

enter image description here

If there is a difference, contact your server admin.

You can also download a different desktop version from here http://www.tableau.com/support/esdalt

Also, you can right click and open the workbook with a text editor. Check the version in the XML. Sounds one of your users could have upgraded.
