Cannot Create List via Import Spreadsheet

  Asked By: Dario    Date: May 10    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 16442

We have a few Office XP users left around that cannot create a list
from the "Import Spreadsheet" option. When trying they get the
error "The list cannot be imported because a Windows SharePoint
Services-compatible spreadsheet application is not installed". They
are 100% Office XP (i.e. no 2003 components installed so this article
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/835162 isn't helpful)

We have repaired / uninstalled/reinstalled / verified SP components
are installed / reregistered owssupp.dll. These users can modify SP
docs without a problem

Is Office 2003+ required to create a list via an imported
spreadsheet? (The Fair Good Better Best whitepaper doesn't seem to
mention it specifically).

Any help is appreciated.

At least Office 2003 or 2007 is required for this functionality.
