Welcome to Justanswer
How large is the excel file ?
then zipping or compressing also wont help.
Mail attachments will have to be within 10 mb limit.
There is another option however.
Use a file sharing site.
So is there any solution? The file was sent to me as a zip file
yes visit www.wikisend.com or www.mediafire.com
Upload your excel file
You will get a secure download link
what will those sites enable me to do?
Are you asking me to upoad my file to you?
They will alllow you to upload files upto 200 mb
Once you upload you will get a secure download link
\Share it with the intended recipient.
I am not sure what that means
it is a file sharing site..
Can you please visit http://www.wikisend.com/
Use it upload your excel file.
what is a file ID?
It will give you a download link
every upload generates a unique file id
OK - I am on the site, but it asks for a a file ID - what is that and where do I find it?
First click on choose file
Select your excel sheet
Then click upload file
It will not allow me to do anything until I enter a file ID. What is that and where do I find it?
Do you have the excel file on your desktop ?
no - should I save it there? Do I just hit "save" and then desktop will come up as a location?
please save the excel file to desktop.
If it is not saving to desktop note where it is getting saved to and copy it to desktop
When I go to save on my desktop it gives me all these "system folder" options about where to save. There is one with my name, one that says computer - any idea which I should select?
Just save it on a blank area in dsktop
i mean dont save it any system folde in desktop
Or you can choose computer->and choose a drive
your choice..just keep it a place which you can access and note down where you store.
OK - it is saved to my desktop now. What next?
Now..as you are having trouble with wikisend
Don one thing
Let me know when you are there
OK - am there now
Ok.I think you dont have account..
Give me 1 minute please
Meanwhile please have a look at wikisend.com and see if you can upload
See the screenshot
I uploaded successfully on wikisend. Do I have to create an account to be able to get the file to the person I am trying to send it to?
After uplaod you must have got a link download page
Just copy the download link and give it to your intended recipient on email
Anybody who has this download link can download the excel file
Shoot. I just registered and now my screen is frozen on a blan wikisend page. I guess I should just try it again?
Blank I meant
Yes. please refresh again
No need to register or open an account(although its free :-P)
And try uploading again
Same applies to the person who will download your file..no need to register.. just the download link is important
OK - am trying again now
Hi, did i loose you ?
When it is almost finished it keeps crashing - saying it is under maintenance. Guess I should try mediasend or what is the other site?
I will give you another uploading site
which ever you find easy
http://uploading.com/ is free
Select the orange broswe files button n upload
I uploaded and sent the link via email successfully! I won't know until the morning if he got it, but all looks good for now. Anything else I should be aware of? Thanks so much for your help.
No that should be all.
Have a good day
