Linking External Files in SCORM

I am working on a project where I have an excel document linked within the training and I am publishing it out as SCORM. When I tested the published files on Amazon AWS I didn't have any issues with the link. However, when it was added into the LMS and tested, I received an XML error saying that access is denied.

Is there something within the LMS that is blocking the download or is there something else happening that I am not aware of? Should I have linked the document differently since it is for SCORM?

I would greatly appreciate any ideas/advice on what I can do to ensure that users can access and download the file.

Thank you!

Maybe you can explain further what you External files you are trying to add to the SCORM then people will have a better idea of how to help you.

It may be as simple as creating a SL file with a webobject

Take advantage of web-based applications, games, videos, reference materials, and more—whether they're online or stored on your local computer.
