unable to connect to excel file

Post by randomUser » Thu Nov 21, 2019 1:36 pm


when I try to import an excel file into nicelabel designer, I get the following error:

External table is not in the expected format. (see also attached screenshot)

I've tried searching for the error but I could not find any posts that apply to my issue.

This is a Microsoft bug which can be solved by installing the 2010 access driver here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=13255 please download the correct driver for the bitness you have of office (32 or 64 bit)
