Are you sure, your .xls file is really an excel file? How do you have
created this file?
Can you post the code how you have used the parseexcel gem?

Hi and thanks fo ryoru answer,
I download the xls file from a website as follows :
Net::HTTP.start(“www.casablanca-bourse.com”) { |http|
resp = http.get("/cgi/ASP/Marche_Central/TelechargerDonnees.asp")
open(“Donnes_Bourse.xls”, “wb”) { |file|
file.write(resp.body)
}
}

Is there something wrong with this code ?
Thanks for help
