HomeTroubleshooting@RISK with ProjectsAfter Importing Project, Excel Workbook Isn't Created

6.4. After Importing Project, Excel Workbook Isn't Created

Applies to:
@RISK 6.x–7.5.0, Professional and Industrial Editions

I selected Project » Import MPP File in @RISK. Everything apparently went okay, but when I saved the workbook, no Excel file was created on disk.

Do you have a personal macro workbook, Personal.xlsb? If so, that workbook is automatically opened when you or @RISK launches Excel, but you may not be aware of it because it's usually hidden. (You can make it visible by clicking Unhide on the View tab in Excel.) If a Personal.xlsb file is open, @RISK release 7.5.0 or older will write the imported project to that file, instead of to the active workbook or a new workbook, as you selected.

This problem is resolved in @RISK 7.5.1.
