Using Sharepoint and Office PP 2010 - both 365 versions.
When opening an Excel spreadsheet, it opens as a word document. It is strange as I have set the associated file types correctly. I cannot understand the problem.
I have already, repaired Office, un-installed Office and re-installed it. and still no luck.
What should I try?
Thanks in advance
Are you talking acout when you open them in browser online, or on the desktop? Also does it do this for all files or is it just few select files that it happens with?
Hope this helps
Thanks for your post here. I would like to confirm with you that the issue occurred in SharePoint Online or on the desktop application.
If it occurred in SharePoint Online, you can refer to the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.
1.Create a content type for a document template.
2.Add a new document template.
For how to add a document template to a document library, please refer to the following link:
If it occurred on the desktop, please try these steps:
1.Run Office 365 desktop setup .You can refer to http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/office365-enterprises/ff637594.aspx .
2.Configure your Internet Explorer.
•Click Internet Options of Internet Explorer.
•Click Manage add-ons in the tab Programs.
•Select All add-ons in the drop-down box, and then check the status of “SharePoint OpenDocuments Class” is Disabled or Enabled.
If the status of “SharePoint OpenDocuments Class” is Disabled, you can enable it.
If the status of “SharePoint OpenDocuments Class” is Enabled, you can disable it, and open the Excel spreadsheet. It will be opened in the Office Web Apps . If it can be opened successfully ,you can enable “SharePoint OpenDocuments Class”. Besides, I would like to know whether you install the desktop Office completely.
