First, to try to clear temporary memory, hold the power button on the Tab until the menu shows then choose Power off.
Then start the Tablet which will remove all temporary memory and then try to open the excel file.
Tell me please if it then opens.

Hi Richard did as you said and it is still showing the same info on the screen i.e theres not enough room to open the app please free up space on your device and try again

Ok, you will have to uninstall some Apps to free up space.
Can you go to Settings, Applications Manager
Uninstall a number of apps, try to free up 30 MB
Then try to open the Excel file.
Let me know the results please

When you say you downloaded excel to the memory card, you mean an excel file right?

ok, likely Excel just wont run on your device from SD card.
Move it back to the internal memory and tell me if it then opens please.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

it says that it is unable to move app as there is not enough storage space

ok, uninstall the app, then install it again from the Play Store.
Tell me if it installs please.
