Hi,

I am experiencing errors and I cannot generate a target file in Excel.
I am translating a Japanese Excel file into English using Trados Studio 2011 SP2. When I tried to generate a target file, it gives me an error, "Object not set to an instance of an object." and no target file is generated. Two messages:

Origin: Sdl.FileTypeSupport.Filters.Excel.PluginFilter.FileWriterAndPreviewFileWriter.ExcelWriter
Origin: Generate Target Translations

My original is xls with some reference links that I do not have. I have done the following:

- I removed (cleared) the reference links from the xls file, and ran it through Studio with the same TM.
- I copied the entire content of the file, and pasted it to an xlsx file. I ran the file with Studio with the same TM.
- I removed three xml files that are suggested by SDL support for the same error message in some past posts:
So delete 3 XML files by going to the following path:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Application Data\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[10.0.0.0]

Windows Vista/7: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\[10.0.0.0]

and delete the following three XML files:

- BaseSettings.xml
- plugincache.xml
- UserSettings.xml

They did not make any difference.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thank you!

Yuki Okada
