Anyone else seen this error?
I'm working on a wire finger guard assembly, where the concentric rings are part files embedded into the assembly.
this is just weird - and a little frustrating.
Well.. Restarting SW didn't help, but a reboot fixed it.
When I worked with a VAR here, We had a client who had this problem and it was annoying, really annoying, so a work around we used was to take out the excel table from solidworks and work it as an excel file linked to the part (design tables). This procedure allowed them to work fine, but this should not be the answer to this issue. So if someone knows how to solve it we will be happy.
we don't need to restart the SW.
Simply you can open the part, then you should be reload the part and save the 3D model.
now it is working and can be edited in the excel sheet.
Hi Peter ,
1.Open the Design table in .sldprt file.
2. Right click on Design table and choose ‘Save Table’
3. Specify a file name and save the excel file.
4. Open the Excel file and delete the images and other excel data other than the configuration related entries.
5. Save the excel file.
6. In SW part, delete the existing design table.
7. Re-insert the newly saved design table.
I hope this will help you to Solve the Issue.
Thanks & Regards,
I used to see this error all the time on older SW files and do the same steps that VIGNESH outlined except on step #5 I always “Save As’ to the latest MS Excel version possible. This is because SW files with design tables that were originally created using older Excel versions retain the older 97-2003 Workbook .xls format.
We have seen this many times and it appears to be the Excel program stays active in the background. What has worked for us in the past was to activate the task manager (ctrl-alt-del) and then selecting end task for the Excel program. Not sure if it still works as I have not seen this message in a long time.
