PM 2016 unable to read .xlsx files

Post by carlm » Tue Aug 28, 2018 4:15 pm

Planmaker 2016 Windows, version 768.1215 (latest)

Attached .zip file contains two .xlsx files generated by https://www.nationalpooling.com/ as well as the corresponding .xls files generated from the attached .xlsx by an online service (I don't remember the name).

PM2016 has no problem with the .xls files but can't read the .xlsx files correctly. Most of the file information (headings, column data) is not displayed.

I submitted a web bug report from my Softmaker account back in 04/2018 but never heard back.

Note: I don't have access to MS Office for testing.

I can confirm this problem also with PlanMaker 2018 and will inform the developers.

The problem has been solved and won't occur anymore with the next service pack (Office 2018).

Will there be a service pack for SoftMaker Office 2016 (what I have)?

There will probably be no more Service Packs for SoftMaker Office 2016. (This is an XLSX file that Excel would never create.)
