Your File's so Fat... (File too large for Preview)

    Have any of you ever gotten this before? This is for an xlsx file that is 34.6 MB. (I know, I know) 

    Is there a limit of file preview sizes? I know the file upload limit is 100MB...

    I think I found the problem via Google...

    Note: The maximum file size limit for the Google Doc Viewer preview is 25MB, this is not a limit that we can change.

    Open to ideas...

    Meredith,

    That is a huge Excel File.  (You know, you know)   :)  

    At the risk of being too obvious. is it a flat file and should you import it as data into a table instead of an attachment?   Clearly I don't know the business case, refresh rate....   but my first impression is to get it into Quick Base directly.
