    Can't open some excel spreadsheets


    I have Windows 10 and I recently installed Publisher onto my computer now I cannot open some spreadsheets. I don't get any type of error message they just won't open.

    WP Excel won't open Excel 2010 Spreadsheets

    I use Office 2010 (32 bit) on my Win7 Pro computer.

    I have been using my Windows Phone 7.5 to open/edit Excel 2010 files stored on Skydrive for some time.

    Suddenly, WP will not open the same files which it could open just awhile ago.

    I have used Excel 2010 to edit these spreadsheets since the last time I opened them with WPExcel and saved them in the same format as before.

    WPExcel states:

    "Can't Open. Excel doen't recognize the file format "<filename"".

    Yet these files open without issue with Excel 2010.

    Any suggestions?



    Update - WPExcel will open cloud Excel files that have not been recently opened by Excel 2010. Those files operate properly. However, once I open the same files with Excel 2010 and save them - WPExcel can not open them. Problem with Excel 2010?

    Unable to open Excel for Mac spreadsheets on my HTC HD2

    Hi Susan,

    Have you tried saving the Excel spreadsheet in a different format? Instead of saving as XLSX, try saving in the older "Excel 97-2004 Workbook (.xls)" format. The steps below explain how to save the document in a different format:

    • Create a file, or open the file that you want to save.
    • On the File menu, click Save As.
    • In the Save As box, type a name for the file.
    • On the Format drop-down menu, choose Excel 97-2004 Workbook (.xls).

    While you're trying that, I'm going to move your thread into the Windows Phone forums and see if anyone there can help us out. I'm not quite sure what formats WinMo 6.5 supports and there aren't too many things we can try on the Excel
    side.

    Let me know if changing the format helps!

    PRINTING LABEL IN WORD FROM AN EXCEL SPREADSHEET

    We are trying to print labels in word from a spreadsheet in Excel. We have tried copying the spreadsheet to a recipient list but can not get it to work. Is there a way to import the spreadsheet and not retype the information?
