Skydrive verses Office 365 Web Apps.

This question is answered This question is answered

I uploaded an invoice that I made in Excel 2010.  I uploaded it to my Document Library on Office 365.  When I choose to edit in browser it says that it cannot because the spreadsheet has shapes in it.  That is true.  However, when I upload it to skydrive and choose to edit it, it opens just fine.

 

I have tested this in the Small Business beta and the Enterprise beta.  Does anyone know why Skydrive web apps is beter than Office 365 web apps?

  • Nevermind,  I answered it myself.  I was only viewing in Skydrive.  When I chose to edit in Skydrive I got a similar complaint.

    Sorry :-)

  • Hi David,

    I'm a new user for SkyDrive. I have a problem to open for editing documents that I uploaded from my local drive to the Sky Drive. I have also a office365 , but I see that SkyDrive is more easy to manage.

    I want to share files at the Sky Drive and be able to work on line on those documents together with my team. I find it hard to understand the way to do it. When i click on the files on the SkyDrive the browser is trying to downloading it and not to open for editiing.

    can you help me please?
