Has the Excel file been saved in a strange state? It opens with a hyperlink dialog over the screen. In Linux at least, this can't be closed because the sheet is read-only. Inconvenient, have to save a copy first and turn off read-only.
Works fine for me, iann, but then I am using Windows and Firefox and by default choose to save such files to my Downloads folder.

Nothing odd about the file, Iann, just saved in the way that it has been for many years. I also use Windows 10, an older version of Excel 2010, Chrome for my browser (used to use Microsoft IE and then Edge), and have never seen a hyperlink superimposed. There isn't a hyperlink in the file, so it must have come somehow from your own system, I suspect. Sorry, I don't speak Linux though, but if you find there is something incompatible and there's something I can do, then please do let me know.

When I receive a file either as a result of a download, or as an email attachment, my system tells me it is read only until I tell the system that it is OK to open it for editing purposes. If I do, some security checking is done (I think) and it is then fine to edit, extract stuff etc. I don't specifically save it as read only.

I shall be away from the 16th Feb until 10th March, so won't be able to respond to requests during that time. Once I'm back, I'll take such requests as have arrived in strict date order as per usual.

And to return to an old theme, it is now extremely noticeable that while there are a good range of cactus seeds available, there are very few seeds of other succulents available. I'd be happy to have more seed from members who grow these.

I got my seeds today, thanks. I got an interesting selection of stuff so I'm looking forward to growing them. I also sent some in collected from my own plants, some Anacampseros, Avonia, Lithops and Rebutia/Mediolobivia.
