I am building an XML file that I wish to open with Excel. This file will have all kinds of formatting built into it so that the user simply opens the file and they are ready to go. I am building a test version of this file in Windows on my Desktop, but it will ultimately be built on a UNIX box and E-mailed to one or more users. I have gotten it to open and display correctly in Excel, but I am getting some errors along the way.

Double-clicking on the XML file opens it in Excel, but I also get a pop-up window with the following error:
Code:
There was a problem sending the command to the program.
I am using SlickEdit as my editor (it handles everything we do at my office). When I open the XML file to edit the raw XML file, SlickEdit is giving me a bunch of minor errors. The first is:
Code:
Error processing schema for file 'C:\Users\israejr\Desktop\junk.xml'.
File 'C:\Users\israejr\Desktop\urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:Spreadsheet' not found
It then gives me the following in a debugging/output window:
Code:
File C:\Users\israejr\Desktop\junk.xml

I am new to XML, so I am not sure where I have done wrong. I assume it is in the initial declaration part of the xml file, but I have no clue what it should be.
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?mso-application progid="Excel.Sheet"?>
<ss:Workbook
	xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:Spreadsheet"
	xmlns:ss="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet"
	xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"
	xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel"
	xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">

	<o:DocumentProperties xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office">
		<o:Title>Sales-Transfer Percentage</o:Title>
		<o:Author>Me</o:Author>
		<o:LastAuthor>Me</o:LastAuthor>
		<o:Company>CompanyName</o:Company>
	</o:DocumentProperties>

	<ss:ExcelWorkbook xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel">
		<ss:WindowHeight>9000</ss:WindowHeight>
		<ss:WindowWidth>13000</ss:WindowWidth>
		<ss:WindowTopX>480</ss:WindowTopX> 
		<ss:WindowTopY>105</ss:WindowTopY>
		<ss:ProtectStructure>False</ss:ProtectStructure>
		<ss:ProtectWindows>False</ss:ProtectWindows>
	</ss:ExcelWorkbook>
Please tell me what I am doing wrong so that the XML is "clean". Most importantly, I do not want my users getting any error messages when they open a file.

Thanks
