Sharepoint, Part 2

“The list cannot be imported because a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible spreadsheet application is not installed or is not compatible with your browser.”

 I resolved the above error by running the Office Setup routine from the installation disk. Incidentally, you’ll need to use 32 bit Internet Explorer when importing your spreadsheet as a list.

However, I still had an issue, where once i’d clicked ‘Import’, the following error occurred:

“An unexpected error has occurred.”
 
Handy. Not.

However, the following Microsoft Support Article helped resolved the issue:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2492798

It would appear that you have to append ‘&ListBaseType=0&DisplayName=Spreadsheet+Import‘ to the URL of the import page.

Thanks to the following websites for help with this:

Sharepoint

Ok, so I gotta vent. This is frustrating:

“The list cannot be imported because a Microsoft SharePoint Foundation-compatible spreadsheet application is not installed or is not compatible with your browser.”
 

I’m using:

Microsoft Sharepoint Foundation 2010

Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

Microsoft Excel 2010

 

I’ll get back to you once i’ve found out how to sort this nonsense.
