Hi there!
I hope someone can help me on this one.
It seems that I cannot work with Trados and Excel. I had been working on a while, even with Excel 2007 and all of a sudden i get this error message that Tag Editor is unable to get instance of Excel.
Also when I create a project from Synergy I cannot add Excel files or else I will get error messages and I will eventually had to cancel the process of creating a project.
I just installed Excel 2003 thinking that that may be the solution to the problem but to no avail.
I open the same files in Excel, no problems whatsoever there, its just in tag editor where I cannot open them.
Any ideas?
