Does this have to be uploaded as an Excel file?, why not try .csv or .txt and then it should pull through?

it's a file that will be supplied multiple times a day so it's not feasible to convert it every time.

"it's a file that will be supplied multiple times a day so it's not feasible to convert it every time."

Why?
You have to give us more background information.



"and contains macro's causing it to be a .xlsm file."
Why not cange that macro so the file format is .txt

This Little macro opens a .xlsm file and saves it as a .txt file

------
Workbooks.Open Filename:="XXXXX\YYYY.xlsm"

ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:="XXXXX\YYYY.txt", FileFormat:= _
xlText, CreateBackup:=False
