I'm having difficulty opening a Microsoft Excel 2003 (XLS) file when using IE 8. Here are the errors I get:
Microsoft Excelcannot access the file 'https://site/file/contacts.xls'
. There are several possible reasons:
The file name or path does not exist.
The file being used by another program.
The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a currently open workbook.
The site is an ASP.Net 2.0 site, using IIS 6.0. I have Office 2007 installed on my PC, which is using Windows 7.0. I am using the <a href a> tag to open the file. The file does exist. Are there security settings that I need to take to allow this file to open?
