This tends to be caused by:

  • An old version of Excel
  • Your company's network blocking the connection

If you have eliminated those possibilities, I'd log a support ticket with us.

After much analysis - The admin stated that there are instances where the user's account gets locked ( not sure due to what). Once the accounts were unlocked, the users were able to upload.
