    Uploads

    I got this error on a post when I tried to upload an XLSX attachment. Looks like the board needs an update for Office 2007 support.

    We encountered a problem. The reason reported was:

    Sorry, you can only upload the following filetypes: .PPT .TXT .DOC .RTF .XLS .PDF .GIF .JPG .JPEG .PNG .BMP .EMF .XAR .WAV .MP3 .AU .SND .RA .RM .MID .MOV .MPG .AVI .ZIP .TAR .GZ

    This is not necessarily an error. If you feel this is an error then it could be something as simple as your browser not being set to accept cookies. If you feel this error is a problem with the server then please contact LoungeAdmin and let us know what exactly went wrong so it can be fixed as soon as possible. Otherwise, please use your back button to return to the previous page.

    For the time being, you'd be best to create a .zip of the file.

    Claude is looking into this; we'll probably add a number of extensions in the near future.

    In the meantime, it's best either to save Office 2007 documents in one of the older formats (.doc, .xls, .ppt), or if the new format is essential for the question, zip it as Chris Baldrey suggested.

    If you want anyone to view this type of file, the viewer MUST have Office 2007 or the 07 Viewer from Microsoft which does NOT always work.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Update: Claude has added the extensions .DOCX, .XLSX and .PPTX to the list of permitted extensions for attachments. The 100 KB limit still holds, larger files should be zipped.
