    Excel viewer cannot open xlsx-file


    I dont know what i'm doing wrong but i can't get "excel viewer" to open an xlsx-file created and saved with "excel 2013" if that file contains a cell with a comment.
    It's not an option to save the file in another format or to remove the comment from the cell.
    Any suggestions on how to resolve this would be much appreciated.

    Good morning carsve...

    ...and welcome to the forum!!
    • Get hold of a full version of Excel 2013
    • Download and install Open Office (free from here)
    • Try using Google docs (it's really crap but it doesn't require installation and might just open the file)

    Open Office Calc, a free program, might be able to open your file as it can open XLSX files.
