Excel Error :: This workbook cannot be opened..

Posted by Paul on December 28, 2014

While working with Excel Services we might often get an error shown below:

This workbook cannot be opened because it is not stored in a trusted location.



The location of excel file (library) may not be a trusted file location.  You can have to add the library location to the Trusted File Locations through SharePoint Central Administration.


Central Administration > Service Applications > Excel Service Application > Trusted File Locations for this.


Create a new item with http:// as the string.


Check the Children Trusted label and Save the item.  Your new item will look like  below.




In this post we have explored a common Excel Services error scenario & solution.
