Does BPC MS 10.0 support Excel 2016?

Hi,

I am experiencing excel issues when using the EPM add-in for simple tasks like opening & amending reports.

– The excel ribbons become (partially) inactive (only accessible via shortcuts)

– Excel crashes completely more than occasionally when opening a report (

Exception Code:c0000005)

I can’t find a definitive answer nor resolution based on browsing SAP notes.

Running on

– BPC 10.0 MS SP 25 Patch 2

– MS Office 365 ProPlus

Thanks for any help

Rgds,

Wim

    Small update:

    1/ Excel ribbon freeze

    SAP NOTE  https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/2419757

    It claims “These fixes are applicable to both Click-to-Run or Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition” however Microsoft states

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3141472/january-3,-2017,-update-for-excel-2016-kb3141472

    “Be aware that the update on the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn’t apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions”

    –> Does this mean the click-to-run  fix comes through  the automatic updates or is still to be released? (my Excel 2016 is to date and still has the issue)

    2/ Excel Crash

    Apart from opening excel templates, the issue equally can occur when using EPM formula “=EPMExecuteAPI()”

    3/ Occasional VBA errors on FPMXLClient library : “run time error 438:  Object doesn’t support property of method”

    Eg EPMAddinautomation / ExpandActiveWorkbook.

     

     

    All help is welcome
