Not able to open Disclosure Management chapters in Excel

Hi Expert,

Not only for 1 chapter its showing same in all chapters and in all the environment.

Please do the Needfuladvice.

    Hello Priyanka

    The message itself comes from Excel, not DM

    See for example:

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/ie/en-US/f2034b31-070a-4ecb-ae5a-879299177cc6/excel-2013-excel-cannot-open-the-file-because-the-file-format-or-file-extension-is-not-valid?forum=excel

    As a first step, do the following

    - go to the chapter

    - open the revision tab

    - select the last revision and click "download"

    - save this Excel file

    -open the file in Excel (use Excel where the DM client has not been installed)

    Does this work? If not, there is some corruption in the file itself

    Thanks Marc
