Import Spreadsheet/Custom List error: Could not load an object because it is not avaiable on this machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to import a spreadsheet to create a custom list.

    have MOSS 2007
    excel 2010 (saved xls)

    I get 2 errors
    MS Forms dialog box:
    Could not load an object because it is not avaiable on this machine [OK]

    Message from webpage
    An inexpected error has occirred. (-2147352567) [OK]

    I also have a problem if I create a doc library with excel as the content type... I think this may be at the heart of the problem.

    how can I correct this

  • Hi,

    Is this for a specific site or it is farm wide issue ?

    If its farm wide issue, restart excel services from Central Admin.

    and if this is only for a specific site, check are you able to open an EWA on that site ?

    check -  http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1127205


    Also make sure the site is added to the trusted sites in IE.

    Please let us know your findings and results, thanks
