HomeTroubleshooting@RISK for Excel: Other Issues"These simulation results cannot be opened."

8.41. "These simulation results cannot be opened."

Applies to: @RISK 6.x/7.x

When I try to open an Excel workbook with saved simulation results, I get the error message

These simulation results cannot be opened. They appear to have been saved in another language version of Microsoft Excel or with different Microsoft Windows Regional Settings.

My colleague has no problem opening the same file. Why won't it work for me?

To open saved simulation results, you need to have your Excel and Windows regional settings the same as the person who ran the simulation and saved the results.

If you need those specific results, you will need to change your regional settings (Control Panel » Region and Language) before opening @RISK. If you don't need those specific results, just click OK and run a new simulation.
