Dear Users and Experts,
I place a new spreadsheet in a drawing of mine and then want to edit it with Excel.
But I get the message only: "Failed to set Excel running".
Does anybody have an idea what is wrong here?
NX Version 18.104.22.168
Microsoft Office 2010
How to connect NX with Excel?
Many thanks for your advices
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do you have an Excel session running in the background when you try to use the Drafting Spreadsheet? If you don't open up Task Manager and see if there are any Excel processes running. If there are, kill them and then attempt to access the Drafting Spreadsheet.
Thank you for your answers.
Maybe I have to add that we just have installed NX 12 a short time ago. On a brand new PC. Maybe we even haven't installed NX12 and Excel correctly.
Our Offices 2010 (including Excel) works, though.
Maybe one has to set some paths or something in NX 12 to enable NX 12 to find the connection to Excel?
I also remember from earier versions (before NX6 ) that is was important in which chronological order NX12 and Excel is installed on the PC. But I forgot what order was correctly. And maybe it works differently these days.
With reference to NX compatibility with Spreadsheet, MS Excel 2010 (32–bit) is supported for NX12 on Windows 10 platform.
Do you have any old version of office/excel installed on same system?
Please create a new part file, using the Blank template on the File > New dialog, and repeat your steps. Let us know the result. Do you get the same error if you select "Tools > Spreadsheet" and if you repeat the steps in the Modeling Application?
