unable to view excel 97 2004 xls on iphone

bushido2006 used Ask the Experts™
I am unable to open an excel document on my iphone. When i try to pull it up, it says:

Microsoft Excel 97-2004 worksheet

However, when I created other xlsx and xls excel files I was able to view them normally. What can I do to fix this?

may be file is corrupt or incomplete download... happens to me some times... and this is just one exel file thats not opening so dont worry about it. we cannot diagnose problem with such small effect...

maybe keep an eye on when you are saving. you might have only saved for PC and not Mac. It happens to the best of us!
Thanks for your answers, it turned out that the excel file was generated by SQL and a SQL engineer fixed the problem for me.


Problem was solved internally
I am having this same problem, would it be possible to ask your SQL engineer how he fixed it. We distribute SQL Reporting Services Reports via e-mail and our Iphone users have problems with them whereas the Blackberry users do not.
