    OrangeLinks email is messed up
    My OrangeLinks email has been messed up the last 2 days. Instead of getting it attached as an excel file it has been coming in a text file that is all mushed together and unreadable

    It has always been a text file, just had an xls extension. This caused confusion for users and some non-Windows users thought they couldn't use the file so we changed the extension to match the actual file type.

    It is a text, tab delimited file so if you open Excel first, then open the file, it should be able to figure out the format and it will appear as it always has.

    Hello,

    I am able to open with Excel and save and open with Excel. There doesn't appear to be a problem to resolve. Can you send me your files or provide additional details on how you are opening the file?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I will submit feedback to product management to allow file type selection. In the meantime, I hope you'll find a way to make it work for you.

    Have a good weekend.

    Jamie
