I have put an upload form field in my form and added to allow Excel files, so the extension is xlxs and attach to email and use max file file size 9192 KB (what the program says is the max file size).

It tells me to: Please enter a value with a valid extension - when I went to test it. Does it on all the xcel files I try - - Any thoughts?

HMM normally it gives you a choice of extensions (save as (then dropdown menu,, --- choose CSV)

Didn't work - csv is one of the extensions that you can export but xlsx in the native extension. Will try dropping and adding and then clear my cache etc again.

Thanks

Don't know why but that seemed to do it. When you attach a file does that make it take a lot longer to receive? It sent from the form but many minutes have passed and not rec'd it yet

Curious

I used save to server and it worked.

Try switching to rule out if it's a bug.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
