technically, XLS is not a file format, it is just a file extension that associates the file with the MS Excel application. the file content can be anything from CSV, TSV, OOXML to HTML. what we often refer to as an XLS spreadsheet is actually a file in the BIFF8 format.

Hi Chip, I get these from time to time as well. PITA. The ones I get have some weird formatting at the beginning. If you look at it in your text editor you'll probably see some style tag ( ... ) followed by two tables. The first one probably has the column headers and the second one the data.

From the snippet of the file you included it looks like an email, not an Excel spreadsheet. What does the file contents look like if you open it in a text editor like TextWrangler (is it human readable)? If it is human readable, then it is not an XLS file. -Tim

Got a file which claims to be an excel file (.xls) but will not open as an excel spreadsheet (Mac Office 2011 Excel) When the file opens in excel, it is opened as if it was a plain text file, when opened in Windows Office 2010 Excel it opens, and opens as a spread sheet. Anyone have any ideas

John: Objects respect scope so they don't have to be explicitly cleared. That's different than an hList or our favorite word processor. :-) Also, 4D uses "ref counting" when it works with C_Object so that makes them even more memory efficient. -- Douglas von Roeder 949-336-2902 On Fri, Dec
