I use WordFast since the early days, and was satisfied so far.
I have WF 4.22 and MS Office Pro XP.
No changes in hard- or software since 2003.
Since last week however, WF refuses any longer to work with Excel files or PowerPoint presentations.
My blank document remains blank, and no matter how often I click Alt +down, I always receive the "End of translation" message.

Does anyone here has an idea where to look for to solve this?
Is it Word related, of Office related, or WF related?

Thanks for your help.

EDIT May 28, 2006:
I forgot to mention that in doubt, I ran the detect & Repair function of Office, which did not solve the problem.

WordFast/Excel-PowerPoint: the solution May 30, 2006

I had to find the solution myself.

The cause of the problem was within normal.dot.
Deleting it restored the functions of import/export of segments from and to Excel.

Hope this'll help someone else.

Cheers.
