Export to Excel: Excel not installed

TDM freeware v 5.4, running on a Windows 10 virtual machine via Parallels on OS X El Capitan. Office 365 installed on this VM.

Select Export to Excel… and get a dialog saying “Excel is not installed.”

Has anyone else seen this issue and, if so, are there any workarounds?

Hi there,

It seems the Excel COM object is missing and since TDM uses it for the export, you get the error. We have not tested Office 365 offline install yet, the last tested version is Office 2013, which works well.

You can test the availability of the COM object by running this simple JavaScript code:

ExcelApp = new ActiveXObject(“Excel.Application”);

If you get an error, the object is not available and it is not possible to use Export to Excel. The workaround is to use Export to CSV function instead, which is not dependent on anything else.
