Excel Add-In Version 7.4.2

January 26, 2018 - Build 6268

The supported versions of Excel include the following: Excel 2010, Excel 2013, and Excel 2016. Although not explicitly supported, there are currently no known issues when using the add-in with Excel 2007.

The supported versions of Essbase include 9.3.0 and higher.

This release contains the following fixes:

  • When Undo/Redo is enabled and multiple windows are opened for the active workbook, performing an Essbase operation in the active tab of the active window may cause the same tab in a non-active window to become activated. While this issue has been addressed, when the windows overlap, there may be some flashing as the previously active sheets are restored. This effect can be minimized by displaying the windows side-by-side. #1913

  • When using an AZERTY keyboard layout, utilizing “dead keys” to input characters with diacritics could result in incorrect characters being entered into Excel. #1914

  • When a “zoom in” operation is performed by double-clicking a cell and the cursor is positioned over the cell’s lower border, such that the “crosshairs” cursor is displayed, the active cell is repositioned to the bottom of the range after the operation is completed instead of remaining as the clicked cell. #1898

  • When updating the Add/Remove Programs list, the DisplayIcon and DisplayVersion of incorrect entries could be updated under some circumstances. #1901

This release contains the following enhancement:

  • With the introduction of cache preservation across deployment updates in version, the value of providing an administrator the ability to clear the cache of end-users became apparent. If there is a need to clear the cache upon the first launch of an updated deployment, a “clearCache” attribute with a value of “true” can be added to the “Data Directory Cache Storage” backing store configuration. #1916
