Issue with Excel and Sharepoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows 10 and Office 2013. I am trying to open an excel file from export in SharePoint and my Excel keeps closing once I enable the data connection. It will then open excel again with a blank document. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi rrustman,

    According to your description, you couldn’t open the excel file link after in Excel after you export the library to excel.

    Please provide the following information to troubleshoot this issue:

    What’s the permission of excel account? Go to excel Files->Account, check if the account have permission to the library or document.

    Go to Data ->connections, check if there is a workbook connection.

    Can you open another files, such as another excel file, word file?

    Best regards,

    Grace Wang
