  • Let's look at the normal offender first.

    What is file handling set to on your web application? (More info in the TechNet Wiki)

    Additionally, have you made any changes to your serverfilesExcelServer.xml file?

  • You may also verify the "Opening Documents in the Browser " settings on the Document library containing that excel file.

    try selecting "Open in browser" option.
