Excel 365 runs OK with AWM 8.14.6 until Excel 365 windows are opened (e.g. conditional formatting and chart data series).  At that point, only the window frames are visible and are 'stuck'.  The only workaround is to close Excel 365, close AWM and reopen Excel 365 without AWM.  I have tried excepting window types and excluding Excel 365 but doing either makes no difference.  I use Excel 365 very heavily and cannot use AWM with this issue.

I'm not having the issue you're describing. I have AWM 8.14.6.1 and Excel Version 2112 (Build 14729.20194 Click-to-Run).

If you haven't already, try doing an Office repair.

Hello, everyone

James,

I think this is a particular case of a known problem with Excel.

Could you clarify at what exactly moment the conditional formatting window freezes? Do you mean it freezes for example if you open the conditional formatting window and then select "New rule..." and close the "New rule..." window?

Please try to create the exclusion with the following parameters:
Class: NUIDialog
Program: Excel.exe

Also please make sure there are no enabled specific settings for Excel in the list of the settings (AWM configuration module > Window Settings > Specific Settings). If there are both specific settings and exclusion that can be applied to a window then the specific settings will be applied in this case and the exclusion won't work.


Best regards.

Hi Bogdan, thank you for your reply.

I reinstalled the program and followed your instructions and unfortunately your suggestion doesn't work.  For your info, I didn't have any specific settings for Excel (only Outlook, but no problems with Outlook).

It didn't freeze when I opened the Conditional Formatting/Chart Data Series windows - it was when I entered new data in those boxes and before I could save it, for both situations, all I could see was the frame of the window - the 'inside' of the frame went blank.  As I mentioned, there was nothing I could do, other than close Excel, then close AWM, then re-open Excel, open Conditional Formatting or Chart Data Series, make the amendments, save and then re-open AWM.

It seems to be OK when there are no formulas or code in the relevant cell and I initially thought your solution worked.  But then I tried CF/CDS amendment on formula and a VBA-related cell and got the same problem.

Many thanks for your response anyway.
