When I was trying to open an Excel document that has already been saved in my computer in Trados 2009 Sudio, the error message pops up:

Connection with server application error:
Unable to get instance of Excel

Could anybody please advise how to solve it so that I can open and work on Excel document in Trdos 2009 Studio?

Many thanks in advance!

Michelle

Check in Task Manager Jan 9, 2011

For Windows XP and earlier CTRL+ALT+DEL, for Vista/7 CTRL+SHIFT+ESC
Check the processes tab - if you find any Excel, kill it.
