      Download file as XLSX
      Try to open file in FM 13

      XLSX file would get imported into FM table/fields

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      The selected Excel workbook has an unsupported file format.  Please convert the workbook to the Excel 2007, or Excel 2008 file format and try again.


      Open the file in Excel, save the file (no changes need to be made before saving), try and open again and it is happy.
