Tried to open Excel worksheet in Sharepoint but get message "The Window cannot be opened because it contains the following features that are not supported by Excel in the browser: Sheet Protection"

I tried to open this Excel worksheet in Sharepoint and got the following message. 

"The Window cannot be opened because it contains the following features that are not supported by Excel in the browser:

 

 - Sheet Protection

 

Would you like to try to open the message in Excel?"

 

Learn more about unsupported features.

 

YES                       NO 

 

 

When I hit "Yes", I then got the second message.

 

"To open this workbook, your computer must have a version of Microsoft Excel installed and your Web Browser must support opening files directly from Excel in the browser".

 

 

What do I do??

Original title: sharepoint excel files

I have 64 bit Explorer.  So I guess the thinking is the error message was generated by the incoming file since I have other Excel files that I can access in Sharepoint with no problem whatsoever??  I sent the file via Outlook e-mail and was able to open it with no problems at all.  . 

 

Thanks for the information,

Jim


Use 32-bit Internet Explorer (you have both.)

Does the same thing happen?
