have a look at th following example :
$(function () {
    $('form').submit(function () {
        var selectedFile = $('#file').val();
        var matches = selectedFile.match(/\.(xlsx?)$/i);
        if (matches == null) {
            alert('please select an Excel file');
            return false;
        return true;

<input name="Datei" type="file" size="50" maxlength="100000" accept="text/*">
