I've been using Studio 2011 for a few days and I'm quite pleased with it. I've got an Excel job with Data Validation fields - all of them were imported successfully - so I was really impressed as not many other CAT tools can handle such fields. Studio 2011 imported the source file (English UK) without any error messages but when trying to export it, the error messages are as follows:

Unable to export Excel file - it may be password protected (wasn't in the first place)
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation
La méthode Open de la classe Workbooks a échoué

Windows 7 Pro 64-bit French SP1

Seems to be a recurrent and annoying issue why can a file be imported but not exported?

Thanks for your help

I'd like to thank Paul for looking into this issue. Apparently, it's got to do with the xls file containing macros if the file is saved as xlsm or xlsx, it becomes a non-issue and it exports ok.

Many thanks again
