  • Resolved sjtyas



    Really love this plugin! I’m having a little bit of problem with XLSX files…

    When a user downloads a file of this type, they are getting errors about the file, and MS Excel is asking if they would like to Fix the file. For some users this works, for others it doesn’t. Sometimes the browser throws an error, sometimes Excel itself does.

    The Excel error reads:
    We found a problem with some content in ‘filename.xlsx’ Do you want us to try to recover as much as we can? Yes/No

    If you click Yes, then it does seem to “Fix” but it gives a message “Excel completed file level validation and repair. Some parts of this workbook may have been repaired or discarded.”

    Any thoughts?

    try this:

    line 62:

    else header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="'.$filename.'"');

    change to this:

    else header('Content-Disposition: inline; filename="'.$filename.'"');
