    Am I the only one that is unable to upload a sample file?

    I have been trying to use Manage Attachments to upload a sample file and when I click on upload (after selecting the file) nothing happens.

    Thank you.

    Sorry for posting in this area.

    Hi Watson,

    There were some problem with the website (some malware attacked on this website) yesterday, however now it has been resolved. I am successfully able to upload attachment. May be you try now one more time. If that too not work, try to delete cookies, and then try to visit and upload your sample file.
    Thanks

    Thank you. I cleared all of my cookies and used a different browser (IE), I was using Chrome and Firefox before. The file still won't upload.

    Re: I can not upload an attachment with my post

    Check the size of your file. .xls/x/m files are limited to 1000 k. Click the small blue question mark in the upload window to see file size limits
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Seems another bug is there as I have seen many users mentioned on their thread that they are unable to upload any attachment.

    Our Mods may have idea about this.

    Thank you. You can even delete the one I posted in the wrong area if you want. I tried to delete it but I didn't see the option for it.

    My file size is 95k

    Just as a test, download the file I just uploaded, then see if you can upload it again?

    Re: Am I the only one that is unable to upload a sample file?

    Are you following these steps...
    To attach a file to your post,
    click advanced (next to quick post),
    scroll down until you see "manage file",
    click that and select "add files" (top right corner).
    click "select files" find your file, click "open" click "upload" click 'done" bottom right. click "submit reply"

    Once the upload is completed the file name will appear below the input boxes in this window.
    You can then close the window to return to the new post screen.

    Re: Am I the only one that is unable to upload a sample file?

    I was able to upload your test file. I was wrong about my file size... it is 9kb - maybe it's too small? While I could upload your test file, I still could not upload mine. I do have 20 files in my File Upload Manager list - so I have uploaded files before.

    Thank you for your help.

    I think the problem is that it was too small. I added a screenshot to the upload and it went.

    Thank you again!!!

    hmm ok, so there is nothing wrong with your ability to upload. What extension does the file have? If you look (again using the blue?), it will show you which file types the forum accepts

    It is an .xlsx file. I think the problem is that it was too small. When I added the screen shot to the upload list, the file uploaded (both did).

    Thank you again!!!
