    Linking date variables from data card to cells in Excel.

    Spencer Clark

      Hi,

       

      I have been able to successfully link text variables from a data card to cells in an Excel spreadsheet, but I have not been able to link dates from the date picker in a data card. I went about linking the data card and spreadsheet in the same fashion for each (creating a variable within EPDM, adding a CustomProperty block, and linking cells to that CustomProperty in Excel).

       

      For some reason the link to the CustomProperty gets broken the minute I try to pick a date from the date picker. (When I open the Excel file and look at the CustomProperty pane in the document properties window the box that says "link to content" is no longer checked, although it was initially).

       

      Has this problem come up before and is there a way to fix it?

       

      Thanks.
