Have any of you ran into this issue.

Excel files saved as .xlsx do not show up in the list under MS Office Excel Worksheet database.

Database template name is as follows.  This is default template that comes with the product.

Title is -> MS Office Library (8.5)                Actual template name is -> doclbm7.ntf.

I had user open the existing .xlsx file and save as xls instead.  xls file does show up in the list.

I am guessing IBM has not updated this template with subsequent releases where .xlsx file is not compatible.

Hello Wongo!

In fact it is an known error documented by IBM under the APAR LO42408

LO42408: MICROSOFT OFFICE LIBRARY DOES NOT SUPPORT OFFICE 2007 DOCUMENTS
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO42408

Unfortunately there is no plans to fix it at this time.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Best Regards!
