Excel Pivot Table Creator Issue
I'm unable to Export to Excel my pivot table created in the Excel Pvot Table
Creator. I select my dimensions, measures, rows, and data then hit the Excel
button. I keep getting the following error:

I am trying to re-set the last active cell on an Excel 2002 worksheet (in
this particular sheet it should be cell DA197). I have used both the methods
described in the Knowledge Base article (deleting rows and columns and
re-saving; and the Excess Format Cleaner add-in).
Deleting the rows and columns does not work; using the Excess Format Cleaner
does not work either and it then also hides the rows from 198 to 65536 - but
does not do the same for the columns.
I have checked that there is no protection on the worksheet.

of the data series while a chart style is applied. I looked in the series

Can I transfer a complete database from lotus approach to excel?
Will the dats be safe afterwards
I would expect the data to be as safe in excel as it was in Lotus.
Verify that your conversion to excel worked ok.
(Depending on your version of Lotus, you may have to save it as an excel file
(while in Lotus) or an earlier version of Lotus, so that excel can open it.
(Excel doesn't open .123 files.)
And keep backups.
(I've found the biggest threat to the integrity of my data is me--not the
application! I can screw up really, really fast.)
