Hello,

I am using Trados 2007 Freelance and translating .ttx file which was converted from .xls file in TagEditor. When I try to save the .ttx file as .xls file by clicking on "Save Target As...", the following error appears:
"Connection with server application error: Unable to locate original file: C:\xxxxx\xxx\xxx/file name.xls. Please copy this original file into directory above and try again."
Is it impossible to generate .xls file in TagEditor without having original file?

Thank you very much in advance.
Best regards,
Yukari

Path must be correct, too Sep 8, 2008

Even if you have the original file, there may be problems if that file is renamedor the path has changed. When in doubt, open the TTX in a text editor and look at the path specification.

It happens to me too. If the original file is not there, TagEditor can not "clean" it.

Maybe embedded objects, images, cross references or macros... I don't know, but for some reasons without original it was not possible.

in 3 occasions I had this problem and only when the client send to me the original file, TE has clean it without problem.

Regards
