Good morning to all,

I have always translated excell files with wordfast. Today, I opened an excell file to translate, opened a blank word file, started translating and in the end of the first segment wordfast says: Go to excell and acknowledge the dialogue box. Then, return to word and press OK on this message.

Well, I went to excell and there is no dialog box. When I return to word and press OK, the segment is NOT pasted in the excell file.

Any help, anyone?

Thanks

Ligia Dias Costa

Maybe there is a dialog box but you just can't see it. Try pressing Alt-Tab a few times.

Wfclassic is rather stable. I wonder why you have problems translating XLS.

As a tip, I have a big monitor and I try arranging windows to see all of them. It really speed up the process.

Thank you both on this. I have found the problem. It is ridiculous, I am a bit afraid of posting this. After struggling and always thinking the problem was on WF (that never gave me problems!) I found the problem was in the excel sheet which was protected from writting BY THE CLIENT!

Can you imagine this??

Thanks again for your help!

Ligia
