Hi,

I am desperate, I am working on a big project on Trados Studio 2011 with a file in excel 97-2003 and when I try to create the target file, Trados gives me an error message "Unable to open excel file - may be password protected".
I tried to change the format of the file source but when Trados creates the target and when I try to open it, it tells me that it cut images and codes.

I am working with a friend and she told me she had no problem opening it and creating a target, so she created me the bilingual so that I can work on it, but then, when I try to create the target, it gives me an error message saying that it "Failed to save target content. Mismatch with source".

So what can I do?

I try to send my bilingual to my friend so that she can create the target, but with my file, she has the same problem as me.

The client wants the bilingual file and the final one.

Could you please help me?

Please check that your macro security level is not too high.

Different for Excel 2003 and 2007 Mar 24, 2012

Hi Coline,


In Excel 2003

Tools>Macro>Security>Security Level

Mine setting is medium


In Excel 2007

Office Button>Excel Options>Trust Center>Macro Settings

Mine setting is "Disable all macros except digitally signed macros", but this is a high level

Mine is "Désactiver toutes les macros avec notifications" so something like "Disable all the macros with notification". Is it a high level?
