Problem reading PM .xlsx files in Excel

Postby cyberdiva » Tue Jan 03, 2017 5:34 pm

My husband uses Excel in MS Office Professional Plus 2010 on Windows 7. For the past few days, he has had problems reading some multi-page xls files: the page tabs at the bottom are missing and only one page shows. He has no problem, however, reading multi-page files made in Excel as xlsx. He tried converting the problematic xls files to xlsx, but that made no difference. He then asked me to verify that I could read his xls files correctly in PlanMaker2016 (on Windows 7) and then to convert them to xlsx. I did so, and all was well when viewing them in PlanMaker. But when he tried to read them in Excel, the page tabs at the bottom were again missing and he could view only one page. Is there a reason that he has no problem with files created as xlsx in Excel but that files converted to xlsx in PlanMaker are fine in PM but not in Excel?

The worksheet register can be enabled and disabled in File > Properties (it is a per-document setting), but this should transparently convert from/to Excel.

Can you provide the file to forum (at) softmaker.de ?

Thanks very much, Martin, for your prompt response. I checked, and the sheet tabs option was checked in both the xls file and the xlsx file. I'll send them both to the address you provided.
