///Support Tip – Visual MODFLOW Flex 4.1 and Microsoft Office Error

With new releases coming fairly frequently, we have noticed a certain number of users experiencing the below error.  At first glance, you may think “WHAT IS THIS!?  I HAVE OFFICE INSTALLED”.  Ok, ok…no need to yell because we have a fix for you while our development team looks to permanently address the issue.

If you see the following when trying to import an Excel file into Flex, 4.1:

MS Office Error

Try the following workarounds:

  • Open Excel, and then import the file


  • Save the Excel file as .xls (197-2003) format and then import

This should resolve the issue and as stated above, development is looking at how to permanently resolve this. Hope this helps!
