A network login request pops up


When working with think-cell in PowerPoint suddenly a network login request pops up.


This problem is caused by Microsoft Excel which requires a login if your default printer is set to a network printer. The think-cell datasheet is based on Microsoft Excel. Consequently, the network login can be shown when working with think-cell in PowerPoint.

  • You may cancel the network login prompt without any side effects (except that you cannot use network services, obviously).
  • To avoid being prompted with the network login again, set your default printer to a printer that is not on the network.
