Hi All,

I am trying to translate an MS Excel file by opening a MS Word document side by side by using WordFast Classic Ver 5. However, when I translate on the Word document with Alt + Down Key, I am getting the following error !

[The current Excel is apparently locked. End session (Alt+Delete)., unlock the entire worksheet, start again.]

Can any body help me to resolve this issue.

Many thanks in advance.

Warm Regards
Gouranga

Unprotect worksheet Aug 6, 2009

It means the worksheet is protected.

In Excel, click Tools->Protection->Unprotect sheet

It should work now.

Still problem is there Aug 6, 2009

I unprotected the sheet from Protection and also by selecting the cells and then right click -> format cells -> Protection -> Unlock. But WordFast is now hanging and not moving to next segment.

Is there any way out.

check PB setting Aug 6, 2009

How is "Exce_ByColumns" set in your PB? Does your WF behave normally when you use Word only? Isolate a few possible causes to see what upsets WF.
