Report to Excel Not Working

  • 1.  Report to Excel Not Working

    I had an issue with my MS Office Suite and had to roll it back to a previous version. Since the reinstall I am not able to create reports in Excel. I can run an earthwork report as a Concise or Explanatory output, but trying to run the report as Launch Excel data only doesn't work. There isn't any error message, it doesn't even look like the computations begin.


    Is there a process that will select the file path of the excel.exe that TBC should be using. I have checked my default programs and they all seem to be pointing to the correct version of Excel.



    TBC v5.10

    Win10 1809

    MS Excel 2016


    Thanks for any guidance,

    I had this issue a while back and it turned out that it was a setting in Excel that caused the issue - however I believe that we addressed the issue in v5.1 (and likely in one of the 5.01 or 5.02 patch updates - however this was the issue


    In Excel, in the lower Right corner there are these three settings buttons



    Open a Blank workbook and make sure that it is setup as shown above with the left hand button highlighted - I cannot remember now whether mine had none of them highlighted or one of the other two, but however I got mine like it was it prohibited the reports from generating.


    If this fails, then I think you may have to reinstall TBC after updating your Excel Installation to clear your issue - can you try that and let me know if that helps
