I added library and site to excel trusted locations in excel services. Under library I set it for both browser and client location to open these excel files and there is no issue with it.

And then I added excel web part to a page and added one of excel file link to it at which it is throwing an error enter image description here


This can be easily fixed. You need to create a trust location for your document library.

Please refer this- http://sharepointknowledgebase.blogspot.com/2011/12/this-workbook-cannot-be-opened-because.html

As the link said: How to add a file to trusted file location:

On the Start menu, click All Programs.

Point to Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products, and then click SharePoint 2010 Central Administration.

On the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration page, under Application Management, click Manage service applications.

On the Manage Service Application page, click Excel Services Application.

On the Manage Excel Services Application page, click Trusted File Locations.

On the Excel Services Application Trusted File Locations page, click Add Trusted File Location.

On the Excel Services Application Add Trusted File Location page, in the Address text box, type the location to save your workbook

Under Location type, click the appropriate location type. In this example, select SharePoint Foundation.

Under Trust Children, select Children trusted if you want to trust child libraries or directories.

Click OK.
