1205901 - Name Conflict - Name cannot be the same as a built-in name


After saving a Desktop Intelligence report to Excel, the following error message appears when opening the Excel report:

"Name Conflict - Name cannot be the same as a built-in name. Old name: Print_Area New Name: ________"

You then enter anything here, press OK and the document opens. This error appeared in the past and has been fixed in CHF15 and SP2 (KB 4828305).

Nevertheless, the error appeared again on German and Italian Excel installations.
