I have a workflow associated with a library and it sends an email with HTTP attachment (Excel). If the document has no macros attached, the receiver is able to open up the document with no issue. If it does have a macro, excel says the file is corrupt and will not open the document. Any fixes to this issue? Thanks!

  • So the workflow is sending Macro enabled documents from a document library via email to users and they are unable to open the documents? If you download the file manually, do you have the same issue? If not, are the working and non-working documents the same size? – James Grizzle Mar 14 '17 at 19:47
  • Yes. They can see the documents, but when they go to open the document, it says the file is corrupt. If I go to the Sharepoint site where they are located, I can open them with no issue and the macro works just fine. – SharpePen46 Mar 14 '17 at 19:49
  • If I download the file manually off of the email, I get the same error message. – SharpePen46 Mar 14 '17 at 19:51
  • Can you determine any difference in the files? such as the size or more importantly, checksum? – James Grizzle Mar 14 '17 at 19:53
  • The only difference I have been able to find so far is .xlsm vs. .xlsx. – SharpePen46 Mar 14 '17 at 20:09
