Can't edit Excel documents in SharePoint 2010 using the webapp – but it is fine using the Excel Client Application

I can edit the  excel files using the client application, but not the webapp.

The error that shows up when I click on “Edit in Browser” option is:

“You do not have sufficient permissions to edit this workbook” (see image below)

Not sure if you are referring to Excel Services in SharePoint or Office Web Apps. Here is information regard SharePoint Excel Services that may help you.

Also, I don't see any screenshot attached.

Good luck...

When the licenses for the users of Office Web App are not configured the users can only view documents. They cannot edit with Office Web Apps without a license. Here is some information about setting up licensing for Office Web Apps.

Don't let the articles scare. It is really simple to do.

Hope that helps...

You may need to find specific articles for those products, but it should be very similar. I thought you had SharePoint 2013, but yes I see you said 2010, my mistake. The licensing is also very similar, but on the 2010 server it is configured differently from 2013, so you might need to find those specific instructions.

Everything working now in Windows except I have one issue in MAC version. When edit document in Microsoft Excel/Word, it throw an error "'edit document' requires a microsoft sharepoint foundation-compatible application and web browser". Any idea?

Is office for MAC installed on the MAC? I am not sure if MAC works with Office Web Apps. I know it has some issues working with SP 2010 in regards to versioning and co-authoring.

Glad you got the rest working....That's cool...
