Unable to edit an excel sheet.

Dear Team,

When we are trying to click "Edit Document"of an excel sheet in confluence space a dialog box has been opened "Firefox or IE is required to use this feature ".

Strange thing is I have opened in Internet Explorer browser, still this feature does not works.excel.PNG

Please tell your IE or FF version.

IE version is 11.






In firefox it is opening correctly, but in the Internet Explorer the document is not opening.

This feature is using WebDAV to accomplish this. Possibly your IE has been locked down to not allow WebDAV?

Hi Davin,


Can you please tell me how to remove the lock for IE to allow WebDAV.
