    As a Windows Phone guy I wasn't pleased when I was given an Iphone as a company phone. I gave the phone a test but after a couple of weeks I swapped the sim into my 925. My problem now is Excel. On the Iphone I had no problem opening excel files to view, there was no editing functionality but I only needed to view on the go so no issues. Unfortunately on the 925 running 8.1 and 930 running 10 the same excel files wont open, with the standard message "this version of Microsoft excel cant open workbooks with" stating numerous reasons, for example "Range protection". Now i'm forced to use the Iphone for work!

    Does anyone know a workaround?

    Nope. Office suote is much better on Android and iOS.

    @Dusan: Office is far better on WM10 than on Ios and Android...

    There seems to be problems in the excel-files that the Iphone can't spot. Have you tried running them on full Excel on the computer or on Excel online?
    Can you share them with anyone, me for example, so I can see what goes wrong?

    When I try to open on Windows phone I get "This version of Microsoft Excel cant open workbooks with: Range protection.

    Uploaded to One Drive, I tried opening on line but I got "The file can’t be edited using Office Online"

    On PC Office 2007 and Office 2016 the file opens with no issue.
