When clicking OK to close the error pop-up, several times a list of rows to change, even though the data was input as should be.


Custom/ partner changes or developments were performed on the template and they need to be reverted to restore the template consistency.

  2. Go to the Business Flexibility view.
  3. Click Microsoft Excel Template Maintenance.
  4. Refine the search to Active Microsoft Office Templates.
  5. Enter Advanced Search.
  6. Refine the Template Group by Marketing Leads - Worklist, and the Template Type by Microsoft Excel (Write-back).
  7. Hit Go.

You may revert the changes in order to restore the Template integrity.

We suggest to perform the testing and corrections on the Test tenant first, then apply the changes on the Product Tenant.
