Im using a program that exports data into an EXcel file to produce a graph.  (see attached file)
But the graph I get has '[Cell Range]' shown instead of the point number (eg A).
A colleague when he uses it gets the point numbers correctly shown.
But another colleague gets the same problem as me.
Spoke to the program developer and he advised there was not aware of anything he could do from the software side and it appeared to be something to do with excel.
I use Excel 2010. Not sure what others use but the excel graph needs to show probably on all main current versions of Excecl

Does someone know the cause of the problem and the best way to resolve.

Thanks Wayne.  Is there a way of specifying an export to be in Excel 2010?

Commented:
It'll depend on the program and if it is specifically referencing XL2013. If it's not, it should use the version installed on the computer the software is run on.

Hi Wayne.  
1/ If the software saved as .xls rather than .xlsx file, might that work
2/ With the fix you mention above about resetting label text, there are no options to show the point name (which is A, B, ...).  Any suggestions?
