Cannot parse the excel file

May 7, 2014 at 12:58 AM
I have a workbook and a PDF form, but it's giving me the error that "input.xlsx either does not exist or cannot be parsed."

Any help? I can send a copy of the excel and PDF if need be.

Contact me via my profile page to e-mail me and you can send the file that way.

You can also try downloading the test files from Mail Merge/PDF Mail Merge Tests/Resources/ and see if you can run it with those.

Test files didn't work either. I'm thinking it's something to do with 64bit vs 32 bit. Will reinstall Office x64 and let you know.

Officex64 didn't change anything. Will send you files.

Any luck with the files?

Ended up using a work-around - but still would prefer if this worked.

For those interested, you can save the PDF as an image and paste it into Word, then use Word's form-filling utility (via DDE, if that means anything.) I also had to save the excel as an xls.
