Sharepoint Online - Access documents with Classic View RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have come across an issue where user is unable to access word document from document library using classic view but can do so using modern view ( same document ). Has anyone come across this issue?

    "We're sorry, we couldnt find a program to open this document" is the message.

    It is a word document so should open using client word or word online but gives above error. However, works fine using modern view. Also it doesn't do for everyone.

  • Hi,

    I am unable to replicate the Error/Issue faced by you.

    But just make sure you have following settings applied in document library.

    List -> Settings -> Advance Settings

    List Experience 

    Opening Documents in the Browser

    Just try this, hopefully it resolves the issue.
