    excel file from SharePOint in desktop app

    by mihaelacarmenbadic ·

    Dear all, I kindly ask for your support. I cannot open an excel file from a sharepoint in the desktop app.
    I have already unckecked “Ignore Other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange(DDE)”. The file is not corrupted. Even if I uploade a new one, the situation is the same, I cannot open it in the desktop app.
    Thank you for any quick support.
    Mihaela

      – Any error message?
      – What exactly is “upload”?

      If you can’t open a spreadsheet file that is on your own hard disk, there are some more or less common reasons:
      – it’s corrupted
      – it’s blocked by your antivirus for some reason (macro’s)?
      – it’s blocked by MS Office (see the trust center)
      – it has the “comes from Internet” property set (solution: move it to a FAT32 formatted USB-stick)

      What I would do: copy it to a USB-stick and try to open first on another Windows PC in Excel, then in LibreOffice and finally in LibreOffice that comes with Linux.
