I opened the "sforce_connect.xla" file. This is the file that later I saw a not that says "resist the temptation to open this file" in the installation instructions. Now I am now unable to use the Excel Connector correctly, and I think that opening that file might be the reason for the following problems. . . .
I have tried installing and uninstalling excel connector several times since opening the .xla file by mistake. Once I get it installed and the sforce connector button showing in excel, then when I select the Query option from it's dropdown, SF gives me the following error message:
" The macro "C:\Documents and Settings\sg0897039\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLKAC\sforce_connect.xla'!sfDescribeAndQuery' cannot be found. "
A similar message appears for all the options I have tried to select, just replacing '!sfDescribeAndQuery' with whichever option I tried to select. I think OLKAC is my temporary files folder, but even when I finally access OLKAC, I don't see the sforce_connect.xla file in there.
Please help me :)
