Error description

  • TM1 Perspectives with Excel 2013 - An Excel dialog is open error
    on slice.??This appears only with Perspectives in Excel version
    2013. ??After Excel opens, there's a blank workbook as usual. If
    you do a slice,  snapshot or active form from a cube view, Excel
    pops up but it shows the blank workbook that was created when
    Excel started. ??If you close the blank workbook, it should
    prompt you to save it if you did a slice or active form. It does
    not ask if it was a snapshot.  ??After closing the empty
    workbook, you cannot do a slice, snapshot or active form from a
    cube view - an error pops up and says:  ??"An Excel dialog is
    open. Please close it first."  ??The only way to do another
    slice, snapshot or active form from a cube  view is to close and
    reopen Excel; closing your slice, snapshot or active form does
    not help the cause.
