    I was able to download the file from the post, rename the extension to .xlsb, and open the file successfully in Excel.

    So, Zeddy and I have been doing this successfully. If you want to upload a file that is an unsupported format (xlsb, exe, etc,) or one that is greater than 1Mb limit for an Excel file, you can change the extension to .pdf prior to uploading. Ignore the message that the file may become unusable. WindowSecrets looks only at the extension. It supports .pdf and allows 5Mb file size for .pdf. When the file is downloaded, rechange the file extension back to .xlsm or xlsx and the file is now usable again.

    A way to get around uploading that "just over the limit" 1.1Mb Excel file with code that it took you 3hrs to complete.
