    Re: unable to attach excel file

    Hey Arlette,

    The file is 251 kb

    Incase it is big, I can reduce it further since it is a sample file....

    Thanks,

    Re: unable to attach excel file

    251KB is fine for the upload. If you see post 6, attachments are working.

    Try this - go to your Settings, choose General Settings from the left. Scroll down to Miscellaneous Options. Select Enhanced Attachment Off. Then try again.

    Re: unable to attach excel file

    I thought the limit was 100KB on file uploads. I've had a few users comment that they can't upload Excel files larger than that, but once they pare them down to basics (under 100KB) they upload just fine.

    For .xls, .xlsx, .xlsm, .docm, .docx, .doc - the limit is 1000KB. For pdf and zip files, its 9.77MB. For the rest its 100kb.

    Re: Issue - Unable to attach excel file

    I have had a few oddities recently when trying to upload. Last week and then today, the 'add attachment' button did not open the file upload dialog box. The web page 'hung' a bit with the wait cursor, and then nothing happened. After about the third or fourth press of the button did the dialog box appear, but it still took some time and then the dialog box opened beneath my browser window (instead of being on top). I only noticed it because there was a brief flash of the window outline before it disappeared behind my browser. This is IE8. Also, when the dialog box opens, the file icons all show an 'x' in the icon and there are no names.

    BTW, with Firefox it works just fine and the box opens quickly.

    Re: why can I not attach a sample sheet

    So when you "go advanced" you then click the paperclip some times you have to click it twice and disable popup blockers.
    If someone helped give them rep using the star button.

    If you have received a satisfactory solution please mark the thread solved. If not Fotis will come for you at night :P

    Re: Issue - Unable to attach excel file

    For what it is worth - the dialog box appeared much quicker this time, but
    - it still hid itself beneath the browser (IE only)
    - the icons in the dialog box still show a red x in them. Both FF and IE show grey rectangles for each file, with the filename and size in the lower part of the rect and a check box next to that text. The IE just adds a red 'x' (almost like it can't find the icon pic) within the grey rectangle. Not a big deal.

    Browsers should not really come into this, a web site should be tested in multi browsers.

    Re: Issue - Unable to attach excel file

    Simon, 2 threads have been merged into 1. Hence, you are thinking that i have replied to PauleyB, but i havent. I actually had replied to c.j and then the threads were merged.

    Even though your post is around 30 minutes later than PauleyB and nothing in between?, well i suppose then there should either be a note that threads were merged or, like you have done for me, name who you are responding to.

    If you look back through the whole thread only IE and FF seem to be mentioned.
