Part Family / Excel

Hi,
if i open the partfamily(Excelfile) in NX, it opens in a new instance of excel.
But I neet to open two excelfiles in one instance.
We have VBA procedures and all Excel files must be in the same instance.

I think it has worked before, could it be that teamcenter or nx has changed something?

 

I hope someone can help me.

 

Regards

Did you check the Excel settings?

hi,

@ruud_vandenbrand

which settings? directly in Excel or are there separate settings in NX?

 

do you mean this option button: "ignore other applications that use dynamic data exchange"

this button is always selected automatically by NX.

I tried to change this settings but did not succeed.

 

are further settings possible?

 

regards

there is some where within Excel or windows to set if Excel is starting everytime a new instance or opens in just 1 instance.

 

quick search:

this link above shows how to set that Excel is starting multiple instance. Show you can check if this is set.

when I open files from my desctop it opens only one instance.
Only in NX it is different.
