Trying to get NX to see my Excel install. I think im having issues since my Excel install path has spaces in it..

 

What is the proper syntax in shopdoc_excel.tcl for a path name that has spaces in the name?  

 

ie. Program Files

Enclose the path within double quotes.

Generally spaces are not a problem, but you need to replace backslashes with slashes or use double backslashes.

 

You even don't need to specify Excel, if you don't need to open the shop doc in Excel automatically.

It might also be related to the reported problem of Error when trying to run shopdocs after editing Excel templates
