Hi experts,

We have been using a template which we have developed over a long period of time, and now people are complaining about some compile errors on their 64-bit systems. The template was developed for 32-bit so that's what's causing the errors. Is there any easy way to make the 32-bit excel spreadsheet available for 64-bit or do we have to construct the entire thing from scratch on a 64-bit system?

Regards,
eX.

Office 2007 is a 32 bit system.  You can not natively support 64 bits.
Your only option is for users to install office 2007 in 32 bit mode (and your templates should be used in a 32 bit folder as well.
(Very tricky because becaue 32bit mode is for programs not document or templates)
