Xlsx Upload - Failed to scan your file


I am trying to upload an xlsx-file into AWS QuickSight, but I am encountering the following message:


Excel file:


Failed to scan your file

QuickSight does not provide any additional information on the possible reasons why the scanning of the file has failed. Are there any guidelines on how to find the reason that might be causing the failure?

Apparently in my case the reason for this was that I had an extra empty sheet in the xlsx-file that caused the error. After I deleted the empty sheet the upload worked well.
