excel busy when I try to modify a template of MS Project visual report RRS feed

  • Question

  • (Sometime) when I try to modify a xlst template for MS Project (2013) visual report MS Project say me that excel is busy.

    But Excel is closed. I try to close and re-open bot excel and MSProject but say me always that cannot open visual report (based on my custom template) because excel is busy.

    In my template I inserted also an external connection to other data (coming from another database).

    The template is populate with "visualize report" ....

    Also If I try to modify the template (using MS PRoject function) MS Project say me that MS Excel is busy...

    I used that template sussefully... but when I make some update to template file (for example add a table o a simple text) then MS Project is not able to open excel file.... but I don't understand why. So I have to rollback modifies and take previous template version.

    [Note:] could be something related to which sheet (of template xlst file) has focus on when saved?

    thank you.
