SharePoint / Excel 2010 compatibility issue?

Hi Experts,

I have an issue...

I've built a rather complicated Excel workbook that I need my users to be able to access via a SharePoint site.

The site is in SharePoint 2003
The workbook is in Excel 2010 - it's fully functional outside of SharePoint - no error messages

The issue is that when anyone tries to access the file from the SharePoint they get the error that I've attached a screen shot of.

I've saved the file as a 2003 version and on at least 1 machine this appears to work correctly, leading me to think that SP2003 doesn't play nicely with Excel 2010.

Does anyone have experience on this?
Any ideas what to do?
Do I need to post the file to SharePoint in a certain way?

Hi,

I'm working in older versions of SP and excel so I can only offer untested comments.
If it wasn't for your mention of a successful 2003 version I would convinced that it relates to users' permissions on SP. It's still worth a shot, can you or an SP Administrator check the site's access rules?
Since the file path of the location includes "templates" read only access may be the norm. I'm sorry I can't do any testing for the correct way to save the file.

Hi, sorry not to have responded sooner.
I ended up getting around this by posting the file to an intranet site which by-passed the SharePoint compatibility issue. I'm expecting an upgrade to SharePoint 2010 this week and will update once this happens (if the compatibility issue disappears).
Cheers
