Microsoft Excel waiting for an OLE action
Catalyst not responding when refreshing cube
Description: You may see these issues after attempting to refresh your Excel Cube file, either via the EBM Office Bridge ribbon or in the Queries and Connections menu under the Data tab in Excel.
Both errors above can occur as a result of stale state in Microsoft Excel. The messages imply that the application has stalled out and needs to be reset or restarted. It is not an issue with Catalyst.
Solution: Quit Microsoft Excel and then restart your computer. Try again and the file should work.
