I can not get pass step 5 in MultiTerm Convert because of error message. It doesn't matter what I select, I get the same error message:

SDL MultiTerm Convert - Specify Column Header (5/9)

Can it have anything to do with that the file names in the previous step are too long?

I need to convert my Excel file to XML so I can import it into MultiTerm Desktop 2011 to a termbase I will create. I only have two fields in the Excel file, one field with simplified Chinese and the other with Swedish:

Does anyone have any idea what could work to get through this step?

Excel file closed? Nov 25, 2011

If the file would be open, the conversion process breakes or does not work (crashes).
Did you previously manage to convert files?
Maybe you copy the content from XLS to a new file, save as XLSX and try again?

I closed it now but still can't get any further Nov 25, 2011

Yes, I forgot I had it opened and closed it. But I still get the same error message. The source file is .xlsx

Perhaps I need to cancel the process and start over again, without having the source file opened. I'll try that next.

Index field... Nov 27, 2011

Hi Fredrik,
I'm not sure, it is the source of your problem but in the first screenshot, I see Word SWE marked as Text Field. You have to set it as Index Field, as well as Word CHI. Text Field is for attributes.
