Sending excel spreadsheet from any email, from any browser will not be an issue. T
Few things are not clear in your Q :
>>I attached to an email in google chrome
I understand you are using Chrome browser and to send email. Need to know Which email software your are using? Gmail or any other mail software.
>>it has to be sent from Microsoft
I don't understand this and there is some problem here. (Are you trying to say it has to be sent from Microsoft IE ? )
>>I went to sent to .....
From where ?? or From which ? Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoomail or any other mail client.
>>why wouldn't the person accept the spreadsheet ......
Did the recipient receive the mail ? That means you are able to send mail and only the attachment is problem ?
The problem could be, your system is infected with virus, already corrupted your file and your sender is not sble to download it because it is infected with a virus ?
Please give more specific details on the issue faced. Will try to resolve the issue.
