Hi everyone,

I met a weird situation, for years, I could click "save target as" in Studio 2011 to get the target file without any problem.

Today, me and my friend, we both tried to get a target file by using this function.

However, we failed.

After I sent the file to my client, he could export the file without any problem.....

The pop-up box I get says:

Failed to save target content: Object reference not set to an instance of of an object.

I tried to put the original source file under the target language folder, since it says no Object reference, but you know how it ends.....

Anyone has clue about this?

Thanks~

Hi Christin,

I work at an LSP and solving these kind of problems is part of my Daily routine. What kind of file where you translating, what format?

99,9% of the time these problems come up with MS office files, usually they can easily be fixed by using the troubleshooting function in Office.

Hi Wesley,

Thanks for the answer.

You're right, the original file format is Microsoft Office Excel....

What do you mean "troubleshooting function"? Could you please specify?

Thanks~
