Two things may be incorrect:

  1. There is something wrong with your browser downloading it. Set your browser settings to ask what to do with a download (example for PDF files for all browsers), then save the file to disk, and open it in Excel.

  2. It is an .xlsx file, not .xls. If you have an older version of Excel, you may need to install the Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats to be able to open the newer file format.
