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.

Re: cannot open Excel file

- 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.
