Excel Documents in Course Widgets

We have some Excel supporting documents that we were hoping to add to the File Repository Area. I keep getting an error that my Excel document is not an accepted document. Has anyone else had this issue? Is there another way to add an Excel document to a course? 


Thank you in advance!

No, and I just tried a new excel doc to confirm. Does your file have anything special in it like a macro or anything? Is it a standard .xls or .xlsx format or something else?

Thanks for replying. I did get them to upload but had to convert them to the .xls format instead of the new .xlsx format. It looks like Docebo doesn’t accept the new format yet.

interesting, I had used an xlsx to do my test…

I wonder if there’s a file type list in settings somewhere.

I just tried another without issue. I wonder if there was some function in the xlsx file that was stripped out when you moved back to xls?
