Several of our staff download data from a website as an excel (.xls) file. We are able to open the files in Excel 2007 on Windows XP PCs, but not on Windows 7 PCs.
When Trying to open the file we get the following messages:
Excel found unreadable content in 'filename.xls'. Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes.
Clicking on Yes leads to:
Unable to read file.
The workbook cannot be opened or repaired by Microsoft Excel because it is corrupt.
I tried disabling the anti-virus (Symantec Endpoint Protection), in case it was interfering some how.
