  • do you have problem open other .xls files that not resided in microsoft share point?
  • is xyz.xls downloaded successfully? can you open a separate Excel Program, and then use the File > Open to open that file?
  • is this same issue happened for other machine using same credentials?
  • is this same issue happened for other machine using different credentials?
