Newby - Compatibility Problems

Post by fdservices » Thu Mar 08, 2007 4:07 pm

Just downloaded the test version of Planmaker and the first spreadsheet that I tested could not be imported. The errors occurred with the fairly simple excel formula:

=IF(ISERROR(VLOOKUP(VALUE($A4),'W:\Usr\tmp\[Trial Bal.xls]Trial Bal Dec 06'!$A$6:$D$100,3,FALSE)),"",VLOOKUP(VALUE($A4),'W:\Usr\tmp\[Trial Bal.xls]Trial Bal Dec 06'!$A$6:$D$100,3,FALSE))

Excel is windows of course, but I am using Planmaker under Linux.

All the best

This formula refers to another sheet in another file, which is currently not supported by PlanMaker.
Even if external linking would be supported, on Linux the file starting with W:\ cannot be found (as Linux uses another file system).
