On a computer that contains Crystal Reports 10 and Microsoft Excel, when you open Excel the following error message appears:
"Crexcel_en.xla could not be found".
If you click OK, Excel opens successfully.
This error message appears because Crexcel_en.xla is not on the computer or cannot be found.
To resolve this error message, perform the following steps:
For Crystal Reports 10:
- Search the Crystal Reports 10 CD for Crexcel_en.xla.
- Copy this file to <installation directory>:\Program Files\Common Files\Crystal Decisions\2.5\bin.
- Restart the computer.
Upon completing these steps, you can open Excel without the error message appearing.
For Crystal Reports XI or XI Release 2:
- Open Excel.
- Click Tools > Add-Ins.
- Clear the Crystal Reports Wizard (crexcel_en) check box.
- Click OK to remove the crexcel_en add in from the list.
The error no longer appears.
