A spreadsheet file should be no different than any other kind of file. However, a 404 error means that the file can not be found. I'm not sure if I can explain this properly, but here goes. When you are testing locally, you know where the file is in relation to the web-page. Once the file and web page are uploaded, there is no guarantee that the files are going to be in the same place in relation to the web page. Typically, servers carve out a separate areas for file storage as a means of keeping the directory structure clean. For example, web pages go in one directory, downloadable files go in another directory, images go in another directory, etc.
Long story short, double check the path name to the file on the server and verify that it is the same as in the web page.
