Why cant I open Documents that are in my Sharepoint?

This question is not answered This question is not answered

I am running Firefox 3.6.16.


I am running Office for MAc 2011 on a macbook pro running os 10.6.7x


My Sharepoint is working but when I try and open a document in Word or Excel it starts the process but then says Error "The address is invalid".


Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    I think you should check if you have enabled the OWA function in share point site. To enable it, please follow the steps below.

    1, Click Site Action -> Site Settings.

    2, Click Site Collection Features.

    3, Enable Office Web Apps.



  • Allan -

    Same problem here.  Same set up - Mac OS X, Office Mac 2011.  Same error message.  Per your instructions, I checked the OWA.  According to the Features page, Office Web Apps is ACTIVE.

    Still unable to download files from within Word.
