xlsm Template associate to library do not open in Excel online in SharePoint Online


  • We have a document library and '.xlsm' file is added as template to it in SharePoint Online.
    When we click on New document its open in client application though i have done the setting 'Open in Browser' in Advance setting of library in SharePoint Online.

    So if any one has come across this type of issue please let me know , would be great if you share the resolution if that issue resolved.

  • Hi Abdul, 

    It is the by designer behavior, when we create new document, it is using "editnew" action, the "editnew" action are only supported the "xlsx" extension for excel file. You can check it from discovery.

    So to open in browser when you create new document, using "xlsx" instead of "xlsm" as the template.
