Excel 2013 Left Clicking Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had just installed Essbase in my Excel 2013, however, this caused me having the below issue:

    1. When I open a new excel workbook, and I left click on any cells, it will cause my excel flicking for some moment.
    2. Whenever I open my 2nd workbook and I left click on any cells, it will again go back to the first workbook.

  • Hi MingWei_Lim,

    Did this issue appear in all Excel files?

    Which version of Windows System did you use?

    As you said you faced this problem after installing Essbase add-in in Excel.

    I found Essbase Excel add-in worked for Office 2010, and there is no article said it support Office 2013. Maybe this problem is related to compatibility.

    I suggest you refer to this link and get more information about your problem:

    However I still suggest try to uncheck "Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE)", go to File- Options- Advanced.

    Any updates please let me know and I'm glad to help you.
