As a part of the new localized NAV 2013 we need to configure the Rapid Start package to be used with new installations. As we started to work with the packages trying to export to Excel we got an error.
The cause is known by Microsoft.
You receive this error calling an Excel method when the following conditions are true:
- The method requires an LCID (locale identifier).
- You run an English version of Excel. However, the regional settings for the computer are configured for a non-English language.
If the client computer runs the English version of Excel and the locale for the current user is configured for a language other than English, Excel will try to locate the language pack for the configured language. If the language pack is not found, the error is reported.
We saw the same error in NAV 2009 R2 Role Tailored Client. The solution is simple, download and install a language pack for Microsoft Office that matches your regional settings. You should find the language pack on the Office Language Interface Pack (LIP) downloads page.
