Opening Excel Files in 365

Posted on 2014-08-26

So we are using office 365 without the desktop version.  This means we have to upload to the cloud before opening.  Fine.  But some excel docs still don't open.  What am I missing?

Some of these files have come via email attachments and some of them were created in older versions of windows that is no longer installed on the machine.
