Hello,

Any help would be much appreciated...

On completion of a project with 3 Word files, and 2 Excel files, all the files - except one - exported fine.
I created a new project, imported only the problem file, but it still wouldn't export...

I then resaved the problem file under another name, imported it, and the problem was still not
solved.

I also "repaired" the project and tried again.
Still no dice...

Any other suggestions?

Yours sincerely,
Christine Rychlewski - christine@aquitaine-traduction.com

Does export fail if you just populate the file and export? Aug 22, 2014

Have you tried populating all rows (= copy source to target, Alt+F5) right after importing, before doing any actual work on the file? If the file fails to export even when only populated, then only Atril support can help you.

A possible workaround would be to import the offending file to any other CAT tool (Trados, MemoQ etc.) and export it from there in a format DVX understands. That way, you can do the translation in DVX and then reimport it into the other tool.

Endre

Try importing with a different filter Aug 22, 2014

I assume that you are working in DVX3 and using the "Microsoft Live" filter to import the file. If so, you could try changing the name of the file slightly, but otherwise importing the same file with the filter "Microsoft Office 2007/2010 XML", or perhaps even with the filter "Microsoft Excel".
To change the filter, open the Project Explorer and then the Properties tab. The top row in this tab is called "Filter" and gives you a drop down menu.
Sometimes a file in MS Office fails with one filter, but works beautifully with a different one. I have no idea why this happens, but sometimes it is useful to try it out.
