Unspecified or Miscellaneous Errors
When attempting to use a Catalyst connected Excel cube file, the user will unexpectedly encounter similar Microsoft errors as seen above. The causes are usually related to Microsoft and Excel bugs, but can be resolved by following any or all of the steps below.
- Run the file through the Cube Updater in Catalyst under the Analysis tab by following these instructions.
- Create a Trusted Location to save and open the file from in your machine. This is now required for most files to work. Follow these instructions.
- Force your system to always use Internet Explorer (rather than Edge) in the background for Microsoft applications by following these steps. This can often solve common errors.
- Quit Excel using the Task Manager and restart your machine.
