I've experienced a lot of bugs with Site Catalyst Version 14, Discover and also excel client. One of the major problems with excel client (for at least 2 months now) is that when I refresh the data block, some of my metrics would be missing. This obviously is interfering with many of our weekly KPI reports. I have found that sometimes, if you just edit the data block then reinsert it then it will work. Another option is that wait for a day and then login again. This hasn't always worked. Its very inconsistent.

Yes we've also seen an increase in buginess in Excel Client -- they pushed an update sometime at the end of May, which has interfered with many reports.

Most of the editing I've done recently on Excel Client data has been done on earlier versions on Excel Client, with old versions of Excel (2000 or 2003). These seem cleaner. To get an older version of Excel Client, login to 13.5 and re-install from that interface.

Good Luck,
Paul

With the Omniture Excel plugin spreadhseet open I cannot toggle (Alt+Tab) between other Excel spreadsheets! Most frustrating especially as this is required to access various data sources at once. Any help welcomed!!

Some added tips with regard to Omniture Excel Client:

Always have the dates externally referenced (from worksheet cells). This allows for easy reproduction of the report for retroactive periods. It also avoids the problem of the Excel client randomly forgetting things like date range, "rolling" and other important facts. In conjunction, I always check the "display filter, row and column headings" box in my Excel client data blocks. This allows me to visually check the appropriate date range is imported, or it is quite simple to create a formula which compare the header dates with those the user input in Excel. I go one step further and use conditional formatting to alert me of problems (cell turns red if dates don't agree).

Also, if you do need to change the date ranges via the Excel client box, it is important to start at the top of the box and reselect all three variables (preset date, rolling-fixed, and granularity). For some reason, if you change only one of these elements and not the others, even the change you attempted will not take hold.

Thanks again!

I'm somewhat relieved that others are having problems with this tool, even 2.5 years from the original post. We get run-time errors all the time, and once we experience one (usually when opening a workbook we have used before or doing Refresh All in a workbook we have used before) we have to regress to an earlier workbook, bring it up to date ... and wait for the inevitable next time it happens, which could be the next day or the next week. We have wasted countless hours doing these regressions. In our opinion, the Excel Client is broken.

Excel is a great interface and using the Omniture Excel Client is a clever idea for some purposes. Thank you for helping for those bugs anyhow. I'm sure that the use of it will be real easier now :)

There should have been more Guiding light nominations, Olivia being the lead actress nomination should not have been the only one, same with Beth's, Lizzie's part was much more significant...and James' part was not the only one either...there were others that should be up there for the last time! with guiding light.
