They should have told you. When I call them they will setup a webex to work through the issue on my own computer. If they can't solve it right away (common with me since if I have to call them the problem is extraordinarily tricky), then they say they will work it offline and call me back. They usually call back the same day, or sometimes I'll get an email the next morning. What did the tech support person say to you?

One approach would be to open Excel, then save your spreadsheet as a .txt file (likely a comma-delimited text file). Then import it with readtable. This gets around actrrually having to to use Excel to read the file, since essentially everything can read a text file. Excel does not make this easy, so remember also to save it to your local drive, not OneDrive.
