Hi DaFit

 

I have receive a response from the relevant team and they advised, currently no.


Are you certain that there are no scripts inside the XLS file ?

Dear jamesch,

 

yes, there is no Script.

If i save it as XLSM or XLSX the file will work.

Thank you for the file. I will get it checked out, and update you as soon as I have some results. But do note, there is no ETA.

Hi DaFit

 

Thank you for your patience. We have an update on your issue and will let you know once we have developed a fix.

 

We have checked your XLS file and ran a few tests. It seems sometimes Excel saves common XSLX files as XLS with _VBA_PROJECT_CUR inside.

 

So, our products strips your XLS because there is that _VBA_PROJECT_CUR folder, even if there are no actual macros is inside.
