HomeTroubleshooting@RISK for Excel: Simulation"The Excel name "..." refers to "...", which has a character not in the current code page."

4.49. "The Excel name "..." refers to "...", which has a character not in the current code page."

Applies to:  @RISK 5.0–7.0 only

When I try to run a simulation, I get the error message

The Excel name "..." refers to "...", which has a character not in the current code page.

with some name and some text shown within the quotes.

You have one or more Excel names that are defined as an expression that is not in the character set for your Windows regional settings. For example, you'll get this message if you have any of the Western European regional settings, and an Excel name's definition contains Asian letters.

The solution is the same as for the similar message The Excel name "..." has a character not in the current code page.
