I've posted this in the Excel 2016 forum, but they suggested I try here too. My OS is High Sierra with latest updates and Excel 2016 with latest updates:
When trying open an .xls file downloaded from Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4, I get the following:
Alert: The file format and extension of xxxxxx.xls do not match..... Do you want to open anyway?
I proceed with 'Yes' and get:
HTML Import Errors
I proceed with 'Ok' and get
Alert: Unable to read file.
No problems with Mac Excel 2011, which I (stupidly) deleted.
I have tried double-click on file and 'open file' from within Excel. I have also tried Numbers and Sheets, but neither deal with the html 'envelope' - if that's the right term.
please try below :
open your excel program first from start.
from files , browse to your file downloaded from CRM
see if this works.
also did you try to open the same file in any other windows machine.
mark my suggestion as verified if helpful
If I understand you correctly, I have already tried this with no change in outcome: Open Excel, click File Open, select file...
try the following:
1) Upload your file here: http://www.zamzar.com/it/convert/xls-to-xlsx/ (or in any other file converter online)
2) Convert to xlsx
3) Try to open it
Please let me know if you solve.

This works for me! Luckily, I don't download xls files frequently.
I still would like to have a seamless solution - this should not be an issue at all with MS products...
