Google Docs

In anticipation of Chrome OS and the coming Chromebooks, I've been trying to get more acquainted with "the cloud." The issue I've been having is that I'm trying to upload an Excel file (for Mac) to Google docs, but I keep getting "We're sorry, but a server error occurred." It's getting frustrating, and this is supposed to be my test run with the cloud, but the cloud's not playing nicely.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

What is the size of the file?

6sigma, I have reason to believe that you worked with the CR-48 as you seem to understand pretty all about the Chromebooks. Would the size of the file be a hindrance of some sort?

1MB limit for Google Docs uploads.

It's only 225kb so it should be fine.

I do have the conversion set to "on." It uploads to 100% then gives me "server error." I've tried closing the tab, reopening, etc. No luck.

Does anyone know of a good source for learning more about the cloud, whether it is crash proof, etc?

Typically when you get a server error it is because conversion is failing, what happens when you disable converting the document and try uploading it?

1mb might be a tad small for a file update! for a word doc!

Grrr... I tried disabling the conversion. It uploaded my Excel doc as a Word doc and of course would not open.

Then, I retried uploading with conversion on and it says now, "This file could not be imported because the contents of the file do not match the file extension."

Not that huge of a deal, but again, the cloud isn't impressing me at this point.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
