I created a small table (less than 200 rows) then attempted to export to Excel. Table to Excel tool consistently fails.

If send the tool script with my parameters to the Python window and run the tool, the following error results - it is the same and repeatable:

import arcpy
arcpy.conversion.TableToExcel("thesisHistAnalysis", r"C:\Users\PCD\Documents\ArcGIS\Projects\Thesis\thesisHistAnalysis.xlsx", "ALIAS", "DESCRIPTION")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "c:\program files\arcgis\pro\Resources\arcpy\arcpy\", line 99, in TableToExcel
    raise e
  File "c:\program files\arcgis\pro\Resources\arcpy\arcpy\", line 96, in TableToExcel
    retval = convertArcObjectToPythonObject(gp.TableToExcel_conversion(*gp_fixargs((Input_Table, Output_Excel_File, Use_field_alias_as_column_header, Use_domain_and_subtype_description), True)))
  File "c:\program files\arcgis\pro\Resources\arcpy\arcpy\geoprocessing\", line 498, in <lambda>
    return lambda *args: val(*gp_fixargs(args, True))

Failed to execute (TableToExcel).


Is there another approach - maybe a pandas or similar solution if the ESRI script does not work? Is ther a way to troubleshoot ESRI Python that previously operated as anticipated? Are there requirements wrt the table itself that could be related to the error?
