Re: Error Message for Excel Web

Hi there @Richard Mak, let's see what we can find on this. 

Out of curiosity, are you able to open the Microsoft Excel sheet locally on any device after downloading it?

Could you also send me a screenshot of the error message you mention?

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
