Excel has detected a SYLK file and cannot load it.

Hi guys, I have an issue here regarding my csv file, I downloaded from the internet a data sheet that I needed most, when I opened it with Microsoft Excel it cannot be opened instead it displayed an error message that the file is a SYLK file.

 

Microsoft Office Excel

Excel has detected that ‘test.csv’ is a SYLK file, but cannot load it. Either the file has errors or it is not a SYLK file format. Click OK to try to open the file in a different format.

OK          Cancel

I pasted above the error message for your reference of my problem. When I analyzed the error above, it seems that the file is corrupted, that is why I decided to download again another copy of the file. But when I opened it, same problem occurred.

Please help me look for some solution to my problem. Hoping to hear from you soon. Thanks.

Hello people,

There are text files that improve the CSV by including formulas and formatting and cell contents as well. You know that if you are old enough <g> in this coding field.

The method below should solve your problem:

  • Click on OK button and the file will probably open fine
  • Then open Office
  • Then change the text in cell A1. Text in cell A1 should not be "id" (lower case) and this will avoid the problem.

Tried to give you the solution and hope this will solve your problem.

Thanks.

You have Microsoft Excel. You use this program but you face one problem that you can not open SYKL file in Microsoft Excel.

But Excel face you an error.

That this file is not open.

Because Excel has not SYLK format. So it can not open this file.If you want to open this file you need new Excel program. The program have SYKL format and then you open this file.
