Enable SharePoint Support in Excel 2002 SP3 ran on XP SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking forward to create a custom list from a Excel spreadsheet in a SharePoint 2007 site and when attempting to upload/import the file, I get the following error

    "This Feature requires a Windows SharePoint Services-Compatible spreadsheet application"

    After looking for details to solve the issue, I figured out that I need to enable SharePoint Support in my machine's MS Excel installation.

    I have searched all over the web and cannot find instructions to accomplish the fix mentioned above.  The only software I got was "SharePoint Team Services" but it is to be run on Windows 2003 Server no in a client machine with XP SP2.
