Error Opening XML Document in Excel 2007

Hi forum,

Any ideas?

I'm trying to open an xml document created by my SAS program with excel and it has different sheets.

However, when attempting to open it, I get an error:

Problems during load

Problems came up in the following areas during load:

Table

This file cannot be opened because of errors.  Errors are located in: C:\Documents and settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.MSO\xxxxxxxx.log.

I know there is data present as the work SAS data sets show this, but I cannot open the destination xml.

I'm on Excel 2007 and SAS 9.1.3.

THANKS

Andrea.

Cause: string was being handled as an integer in XML.

Manually converted and works.

glad you have your solution.

When I got those messages often it was because my style definitions were wrong.

Annoyingly, navigating to the CONTENT.MSO folder was difficult because of "hidden" folders. Pasting the path  to the log file shown in the error message revealed just how many of these errors I make Smiley Wink
