Excel 2007: Send for Review
Posted on 2010-08-27
One of our client sent me an Excel 2007 attachment file in Outlook but when I tried to open the attachment it says "Excel cannot open the file 'filename.xlsx' because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the format of the file."
I have verified that the file type .xlsx is assigned to MS Excel 2007.
The client is sending this attachment from Excel 2007 > clicking Mail Recipient (for Review) icon (or better known as Send for Review in Excel command options).
The client also tried to send me the same excel file as a regular attachment (In Outlook, clicked new Mail, click Attach file OR from Excel by clicking the Office button, Send to Email). And I'm able to open those attachments.
Our Outlook 2007 is tied with Exchange 2003.
Do we need to have sharepoint so that I will be able to open the attachment?
