In the past, we only extracted the data we needed from EXCEL, specifically, we only read the data maintained in the first SHEET, and we didn't check other data in the WORKBOOK. In this release, we changed to a central API to parse the excel file, and the check scope has been enlarged. For example, the invalid reference will be checked and blocked.

These invalid elements can not be directly saw in the Excel. You can check them follow:

1.Change the excel file extension to ZIP.

2.Open the ZIP file, open workbook.xml under folder XL. Please check whether exist any ‘defineName’ node with invalid value #REF!.


In order to solve the error, there are two options:

  1. Download a new clear template (not ONE-ROW template) and copy the data to this new template. If you want to copy additional sheets, please DO NOT use 'Move to' function. Just copy the whole sheet content and paste to the new template.
  2. If you want to still use the existing excel, you can execute below VBA macro code to remove all named excel ranges, save the template again. Please COPY your original file as backup first before executing below VBA code:

Sub removeAllNames()

'Remove all names in current workbook, no matter if hidden or not

   For Each tempName In ActiveWorkbook.Names



End Sub
