I would like to use SDL Trados Studio 2009 to translate a large Excel 2003 document. I have Excel 2003 installed on my computer. I have created a new project, a new memory for the project, but then I am unable to open the Excel document to translate.

The error message I receive is the following:
Connection with server application error: Unable to cast COM object of type 'Trados.Interop.Excel.ApplicationClass' to interface type 'Trados.Interop.Excel._Application'. This operation failed because the QueryInterface call on the COM component for the interface with IID '{000208D5-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}' failed due to the following error: Library not registered. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002801D (TYPE_E_LIBNOTREGISTERED)).

I've also tried to use SDL 2007 to pre-translate the Excel file, but it's not working either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
