Hello. Translating a batch of Excel docs. WF was doing great for the first few, now won't link! I get that "attempting link..." message in the bar at the bottom, and then it just sits there and does nothing. I haven't changed TM or any settings... just went to the next XLS. Or actually went to next worksheet in the same workbook -- and opened a new Word doc for the translation. Also, before doing this (i.e., between these two WF sessions), computer was off for a while. Also tried another XLS file I hadn't worked in yet... same thing. I have WF 5.53, MS Office 2000. Thanks for any advice.

I rebooted... then it worked, now it doesn't again! Oct 21, 2010

Seems it must be something I'm doing or not doing between Excel files and/or worksheets. I understand that a new Word doc is required for each worksheet. As I mentioned, I had done several before it stopped linking. Now I get the "attempting link..." message at bottom of window. Then, after several minutes, I get the "End of translation session..." message!

I have tried manually unlinking and relinking from the Wordfast menu. Nothing. Please, you who have more experience than I do with working in Excel... what might be the problem?
