Hi all,
I am using the Trados Starter Edition 2017 to translate a German Excel file to English.
When I finish and try to export to the target file, I get 2 errors: "Der Objektverweis wurde nicht auf eine Objektinstanz festgelegt" (The object reference was not set to an object instance).
Does anybody know how to solve this? Otherwise I will have to translate it again.

Hi Kerry,

I have the same problem using the 2017 Freelance Edition. Have you found a solution by now?

Kind regards,
