Excel2007/AS400 data transfer crashes during download
Posted on 2007-07-31
I installed the cwbtfxla.xll file on a user's brand new PC this morning so she can do data transfers from our AS/400 databases into an Excel spreadsheet. It seems to work on all other versions of Excel around the office, but when I try running the data transfer in Excel2007 it does not work. She is able to enter the database and lib name, but when she tries to run the transfer she gets the familiar IE app crash screen, (complete with the useless options of send/ don't send to Microsoft). PC was rebooted and restarted, data transfer was attempted again and the same thing happens. Unfortunatley, as of right now this is the only PC in the office that has Excel2007 on it, so it is not yet possible for me to test it on a different computer.
Does anyone know if there are any known bugs with this new version of Excel which will cause this? Does anyone know of any remedies or fixes? Thanks
