error in sharepoint 2013;The specified file is not a valid spreadsheet or contains no data to import


  • Hello,

    SharePoint 2013/SharePoint Designer 2013

    I have tried with Designer and SharePoint directly and I get the same error both times (see subject line)

    In Designer 2013, in the "List and Libraries" ribbon I click "List from spreadsheet" and try and to import an excel sheet.

    From SharePoint 2013 tried the "Import Spreadsheet" app and get the same error.

    The excel file has no empty columns/rows/cells and the headers are text.

    In the SharePoint Designer 2013 step by step book, page 77. They propose a solution if the error was "An unexpected error has occurred" but it's for SharePoint 2010, I don't know where this would be in 2013 or if it would work. They write "On the Site Actions menu, click More Options to display the Create dialog box. Under Filter By, click Blank & Custom, select Import Spreadsheet, click Create."
