I have a client that has non-domain administrators unable to import CSV or XLS files into their contacts in Outlook while in their Terminal Server session. I am able to take the same files and import them, without fail, as the admin or as a member of the domain administrators group.

Until about 6 weeks ago users were able to import without any challenge. I suspect an update on the Exchange server; but do not know how to vet that information. The Terminal Server is running Server 2008 R2 with Outlook 2003. Exchange is 2007.

1. An error has occurred in the Microsoft Excel Translator while getting the contents of a file system.

The Microsoft Excel File <file location on terminal sever> hos no named ranges. Use MS Excel to name the range of data you want to import (click ok to dismiss).

2. A file error has occurred in the translator while trying to establish a filed map.
Unexpected error (53) occurred (click okay to dismiss)
