  2. Excel Online filters causes dractically increased filesize

    I faced an issue with Excel online that causes sudden increase of filesize.

    I managed to replicate it.
    I tried this with Edge and Chrome browsers with same result.

    This is how I managed to replicate it.
    1. create a new excel file with excel online
    2. add text/numers to several rows in column "a"
    3. select whole sheet
    4. add filters
    5. close excel online
    -- At this point the filesize is ok
    -- Excel online and Excel 2016 behaves differently. Excel online adds filters to each column but Excel 2016 adds them only to column with some content. …

  6. Permissions won't populate contacts from outlook

    My organization is a merger of two non-profits and we are in the beginning stages of Office 365 roll out, currently we use google to lock online spreadsheets and wanted to use that function for excel 365.

    However, when I download the excel file to edit the permission, I can't access my outlook contacts to choose the correct program director (20 + programs, 20 + tabs, 20+ individual directors I have to create unique access codes for and editable ranges).

    Currently, since my organization is in the middle of a merger, our company email is an alias while the underlying…

  15. Fix Grammatical Errors in "Couldn't Open the Workbook"

    Please fix the grammatical errors in the following message.

    "We're sorry, we couldn't open your workbook... Do you want to try and open this file in Excel?"

    The first sentence is a "comma splice." It should be "We're sorry. We couldn't open your workbook."

    The last sentence has "try and," which is a common mistake. The sentence should read "Do you want to try to open this file in Excel?" In other words, instead of using "try and," use "try to."

  16. more info on why the file cannot be opened.

    A LibreOffice saved as .xlsx file cannot be opened in the online Sharepoint. The error is very generic and it does not give even a starting point where to look. it would be nice to have a more detailed description of the error to be able to rectify the issues between the vendors of the office suits.
