Error Msg when opening Excel attachment in Outlook 2003

By RRobles7999 ·
I have checked the 3 partition hard drives and all looks good.The attachment has no permissions. I able to change the file name and re-email the attachment and the client is able to get the file just fine in outlook 2003.
I get the following email when trying to open the attachment.
Can?t create file: COMMERCIAL INVOICE ,xls right-click the folder you want to create the file in, and the click properties on the shortcut menu to check your permissions for the folder.
This just bugs me not able to figuer the problem and why.

More than likely Macros....

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to Error Msg when opening Ex ...

The spreadsheet probably has macros in it which will prevent it from being opened from within Outlook because the spreadsheet does not have permission to write in the TEMP folder.

Stop trying to open it from within Outlook. Save the file attachment to your hard drive first. Then using explorer, navigate to where you saved the file and double click it to open it. A warning MAY pop up about enabling macros.
