Exported excel


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

mac os   10.6.4

Description of the issue

When  I export95  excel .xls    I get strange action in Excel  14.1.3  that I do get in FMP 7.
I recently upgraded.
when I change   =[Age.xls]Sheet1!$A$1   to    =[Age.xls]Sheet1!$A1   (so I can do a fill down)
my exiting SS (works OK with FMP9 exports)  no longer recognizes the file I just exported.
The  =[Age.xls]Sheet1!$A$1   worked OK.


ps  Separate issue  ----> Is there an update coming, I get quite a few automatic quits, with a report sent to you.   Seems to be NO pattern to the failures.

Steps to reproduce the problem

export95  excel .xls       Have another SS that refers to the exported one

Expected result

ability to do a 'fill down'

Actual result

not a formula or loses cotact with exported  .xls  file

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

no error msg


laborious copy/paste
