I have document library which has three folder and sub-folders inside on it. When I tried access a excel file, in two folders I have an option to "Edit in Browser". But for one folder that option was not there for that user. I have provided same access level for that users in all the folders.

Could any on please help on this.

Thanks in advance


  • Are the files all XLSX format? Older XLS format cannot be edited in browser.
