Problem opening XLS files after Windows patches in Autumn 2018

7 - Meteor

Dear all,


We have the same type of problem here in October 2018 with one of the Windows patch, as you previously had in October 2017. Wee tried the manipulation you've suggested last year, but we have another error:

"Error opening connect string: Microsoft Access Database Engine: External table is not in the expected format.\3274 = -328602519


Cailin has suggested to open a new case for a better and easier follow-up.

I am also facing the same issue. Any resolutions?

I've tried to install the Access 2010 driver as suggested by Support, but it still does not work 😞

I have also reported this issue to Alteryx Support. Hope to hear from them soon. Will update here for any updates from them.

Are there any responses from Alteryx Support?

None, since they asked to test after installer Microsoft Access 2010 driver, which was not successful (another error in fact)
