Excel 2016 support for NX10.0.2 and NX10.0.3

Siemens Phenom Siemens Phenom

We're getting lots of questions regarding support for Excel 2016, so I thought it was worth mentioning here that starting NX10.0.2 mp7 (not yet released) and NX10.0.3 mp3 Excel 2016 support is available.

 

However, there is a critical issue with Excel 2016 that Microsoft are going to fix and release with their latest build 16.0.6769 - supposed to be released by May.  Please refrain from using Excel 2016 before the release of this build as it will impact basic workflow.

So, if I am going to install the Office update NX 10 with MR 3 and MP 3 will be compatible (supported and certified) with Office 2016?

Yes. But please wait until Microsoft releases build 16.0.6769 before installing Excel 2016.

Can you please clarify which Excel 2016 releases address the compatibility issues with NX.  There are already multiple 16.0.6769 releases out during April and Microsoft is up to 16.0.6868.2062 as of May 10 on the Current channel.  Do any of these address the issue?  Additionally, I am on the Microsoft Deferred Channel and on May 10 a 16.0.6001.1078 release was put out.  Does this address the compatibility issue?

The Microsoft critical issue is not a 'compatibility' issue - NX will hang if you select Close [X] to close the Excel Workbook (it works the first time, but not subsequent times), rather than File > Close.
Both NX10.0.2 mp7 and NX10.0.3 mp3 will support Excel 2016. We simply advise that you wait until the critical issue is fixed before you start using Excel 2016 with NX.
I'll check to see if we have any updates on the build release.

Microsoft were not able to fix the problem in build 16.0.6769.XXXX. We have reopened the service request and the latest communication we have received is that, tentatively, this will be fixed in June/July timeframe (16.0.70XX.XXXX).

I received confirmation today that the latest Excel 2016 update (Build Number: 16.0.7070.2026) has been tested and resolves the critical issue discussed above.

Since this thread was started we have released NX10.0.2 mp7, so both NX10.0.2 and NX10.0.3 are now capable of supporting Excel 2016.

Ben -

Our IT guy in charge of Office installations is getting me confused.

He says your version (16.0.7070.2026).of Excel 2016 is the "Office 365" version.

The version of Excel 2016 we are installing (with the latest updates from MS) is the "normal" version and is 16.0.4405.1000

 

So are we OK?  Or is MS just 2665 versions behind in releasing patches?

 

A more confused than normal...Ken

Hi Ken,

I've contacted the developer for more clarification. I will post an update when I receive it.
