Make sure your browser understands it should open excel files in excel.

Very funny, thanks. Now I need to make sure it works for all of the other browsers and 300 users.

Funny how?  I'm just pointing out that the choice of program that your machine makes to open a specific file type depends on what you've told it to do.

I found that if you right-click on the link and select Open in a new tab it opens in Excel.  So now I have added the text: Right-click on the link above to open in Excel.
