    Found this solution:

    This may be a network issue or maybe a strict virus scanner setting that
    prevents Exxcel from accessing the file when it wants to.
    Try toning down the virus scanner.

    I hope it helps.

    Accepted Solution

    Reinstalled Excel. User was able to open spreadsheet.
