Excel object in word not working

Posted on 2011-03-02

I have an excel object embedded into a word document and when I try to edit the excel doc it gives me an error "Auto Recovery has been disabled for this session of excel"  and then it turns the excel doc into an image not allowing for editing. We have tried repairing Office and this works for a few days or weeks and then it happens again.  Could this be a problem with the original excel document?  It seems like the link is being broken, I just don't know why. Any Suggestions?

I would first try to open the original excel document to see if you got this error there too.  If you got the error there, then it might be the excel document itself who have a problem.  Once you are in this file, go in Excel options and find the "Save auto recover information every ___ minutes".  Check this option and see if your word file still have the same problem.

Have you tried to embed another excel object into that document (one that you are 100% sure that is fully working)?  If not, i would try that too.

You could get some more help here

Could you check your Excel setup to see if it has autorecover checked?
