When I upload an Excel 2003 file to my website, my visitors can download it unzipped.

When I upload an Excel 2007 file to my website, my visitors can only download a zipped version of it.

How can I change this?

It doesn't really make a difference, most people are able to unzip files, and it's the best format to donload files in as it reduces the size of a group of files.

I don't really know about changing as I don't deal in Excel.:)..Sorry.

I am finding this to be a bizarre problem with IE8 and not with yola.

Here is the explanation I found:

I downloaded and installed firefox, and sure enough, no problem.

Hi there Jonathan,
Thanks for the update on the zip issue. We much prefer Firefox to IE here at Yola...
