URI schema to open Excel in iOS App RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Good evening everybody

    I'm trying to create a link in order to open one Excel file from a third part app, with an URL using the Office URI Scheme, and open it in the iOS Excel App.

    I followed the instructions here https://msdn.microsoft.com/it-it/library/office/dn906146.aspx#sectionSection9 and I made the l'URL:

    ms-excel:ofv|u|https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=6CC14625E9565323!367&authkey=!AH7pS8P6NEHhp28&ithint=file%2cxls

    The file is in one folder on my OneDrive account.

    When I tap on the link, the Excel iOS App is launched correctly and it try to download the file, but then I get the errore "Error opening the file".

    I tried to open the file using the url in Safari and Chrome iOS app, with "Open in -> Excel" and the app dowloads correctly the file and I can view it in the app.

    Any idea on what is the problem?

    Thank you and good work.

    Nicolò
