I am trying to link to an excel file located on another sharepoint site in my domain. Whenever I attempt to link to the file it will not make any attempt to open in the excel web app (sharepoint will instead offer to download the file to my computer). Is there a way to force it to do this?
The file will open in the web app if I browse to it through its library, but if I link directly to it (where the url ends in .xslm) my browser will always just download the file instead. I tried copying the url of the webapp page (while this file is open), but that link eventually stopped working (I'm assuming it was because someone had updated the file).
