I suppose you didn't attach an Excel file, but an XML or mHTML file, but with a suffix .XLS or .XLSX, so Excel implicitly called cause of suffix raise the warning. (It's a FAQ)

Hint: for a true XLSX file (sorry for XLS, proprietary format, you need OLE) look for recent SAP provided classes or Abap2Xlsx library.
