Conflict with MySQL for Excel: internal datasheet does not open

Problem

think-cell's internal datasheet does not open with MySQL for Excel installed.

Workaround

The only workaround is to deactivate the MySQL Add-in for Excel. To do this, open Excel and go to FileOptionsAdd-ins, under the Manage: section select COM Add-ins from the drop-down menu and click Go. Finally, un-check MySQL for Excel and select OK. The internal datasheet of think-cell will now open. It may be necessary to restart PowerPoint and Excel for the change to take effect.

Solution

We have filed a ticket with MySQL directly. They are planning on implementing a fix in the next version of MySQL. You can view the ticket on the MySQL website under bug #90475.
