I am having a weird issue. I uploaded an excel document to sharepoint, and when I click the link it does not do anything, however if I right click open in new tab it opens. ** This is an excel document saved to html** Googling around hasn't really brought anything to fruition, any help would be greatly appreciated.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Is this behavior same for every excel file and every document library on your site? – luccio Jan 10 '13 at 13:13
No, it seems to just be one document. – user1825126 Jan 10 '13 at 21:43
I'd try to save that document in different format (older or newer xls). If it's problem only with this file, it will not be sharepoint issue. – luccio Jan 11 '13 at 7:52
Which version of Excel do you use? 2003 and earlier or 2007 or greater? This may be a 2003 and earlier issue. – Benny Skogberg Jan 15 '13 at 15:00
