    Not able to upload file?

    Is there something going on with "Manage Attachments"? I've been trying to upload an .XLSB which is 2.8 MB. Should accept up to 9.7 MB I believe?
    "LOTTERY IMPORT TEST.xlsb - Upload of file failed."

    Thanks,
    Dean

    I have experienced the file size limits not being exactly as documented. That said, in the vast majority of cases, it is much better to upload a small representative sample of your data that is just enough to illustrate your problem. If you can do this for your particular issue then (a) this makes it easier for any potential solvers to absorb the problem and increases your chances of a quick response and (b) avoids the upload size limits.

    You could try putting it in a zip file, which also has a limit of 9.77MB.

    I have no idea why different file types have different size limits, but there you are.

    Dean, if your file is too big to upload, then it is wayyyyyy too big for what we need. We only need a small representative sample of your data (showing a good sampling of variables), as well as some expected outcomes - these can be calculated manually, if needed
    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

    If you are trying to post with code, please post without it first. If there are < or > signs in the code or formula, ensure you add spaces either side.
