Windows 10: Office 365 / Excel 'corrupt' file Solved

    Office 365 / Excel 'corrupt' file


    Hi

    Running W10 pro...with office 365 Outlook/Excel etc...

    Excel is giving me fits. Opening an excel file within an email gives me 'corrupt' file. If I save the file I will be able to open it up *sometimes*. I have tricked the OS into opening the file by printing from the email attachment and then clicking 'save'. Sometimes that will actually open the excel file but not always.

    Any ideas? I even installed excel previewer for mobile and confirmed that excel (desktop) was the app to open excel files but that did not help.

    edit: this is happening with Word as well.

    Hi,
    Only thing I can think of is doing a repair of office, other people had had various issues since upgrade

    Right click Start Button and select Programs and Features
    Find Office and select it
    At the top you should now have a button labelled Change
    Click this and you should have an option to Repair

    See if that makes any difference
