Fast Solution to Error: Erorr Opening Downloaded Spreadsheets
Erorr Opening Downloaded Spreadsheets
I download and save a spreadsheet (have tested with .xls and .xlsx) to my computer from a webpage in Internet Explorer, then attempt to open it. Excel 2007 first displays an error saying that the extension doesn't match the file type, and lists a file path that points back to the file's original location on the server. If I tell Excel to open the file anyway, it opens ok, and then thereafter it opens fine; however, an associate of mine, that does not have direct access permissions to files on the server (he can only access the files through the Webpage that manages them), gets a second error that says "file could not be found or User does not have access" when he follows the same steps. My question is: When I attempt to open a spreadsheet I've saved to my machine, is there a way to make Excel 2007 actually open the file instead of going off to search for the file's original server location?
