We have a user who creates Excel 2010 workbooks pulling querys from existing data on Access and other Excel workbooks. These workbooks have a number of worksheets.
When he wants to make any edit to all the worksheets simultaneously (such as inserting a column on worksheet 1 and having the column insert on all of the worksheets while having all of the worksheets selected [grouped]) he receives the error:
"Cannot make changes to a table or XML mapping when multiple sheets are selected".
He was able to do this in previous versions of Excel (our most recent previous being in Office 2007).
I checked on as many online forums as I could find but could not get a satisfactory response as to why this error occurs or if there is a way to do this operation in Excel 2010.
One of the most unhelpful answers (this from a "Microsoft Support Engineer" on http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_2010-excel/error-cannot-make-changes-to-a-table-or-xml/8c0b1c2f-4ad0-4df1-a700-862a637a1e3e
"Editing data from a table selecting multiple sheets is not possible".
Is there another answer that you know of?
