Quickbooks 2007 fails to Export to Excel, Server Busy
Posted on 2007-11-15
When exporting Quickbooks 2007 reports to Excel (Office 2003 version) I get a window titled:
"Server Busy" the body of the message reads : This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate the busy program and correct the problem."
I try the 'switch to' and my start menu opens. Excel does not start and the error message remains until I kill the EXCEL process in the Task Manager. I scoured the QB website and found the issue and the remedy
which is to kill Excel in Task Manager and re-run the export. I do this and the error just repeats. I reverted to QB 2005
and the error came up twice then suddenly began exporting to Excel properly. I then went to QB2007 and the export worked properly there too until I rebooted and the issue returned.
