Excel viewer in SharePoint 2010 not loading Workbook

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have added a .xlsx file to a shared documents folder in sharepoint 2010. When I click it the xlviewer.xls is loaded but it just continually shows the loading animation. I can load the file in Excel using the Edit in Microsoft Excel’ option.The same happens if I use a ‘Excess Web Access’ web part, it just shows loading.

I am new to sharepoint and wonder if I have a setting not turned on properly.

here is a section from my log file

Answer:

Exactly. You have to create a SiteCollection Root in the WebApp whose xlsx been loaded. There´s no need to be a blank one.
