Hi,

I frequently upgraded to a Windows 8 OS with 64 bit. Since I got my new computer, I noticed that I can no longer import data using the option to Add XY Data by browsing for the .xlsx file. It gives me an error "Failed to connect to Database" (See attached screen shot). Any idea why this is happening? I assume it's due to 8 OS because I've never had an issue importing XY data previously, and when I try to import the exact same file on my old computer with Windows 7, it works.

Thanks for any advice.

try saving to an older version of excel (aka .xls) to see if that temporarily resolves the problem
