LINK Excel.Sheet has issues with Non-English Office RRS feed

  • Question

  • In non-english office when we issue LINK  Excel.Sheet.12 command, the range parameter is causing "Error! Invalid Link" error (¡Error! Vínculo no válido in spanish).

    Example if we do:

    {LINK  Excel.Sheet.12 C:\\Temp\\Text.xlsx  Test!R1C1:R2C2 \a \f 4 \h}

    We get invalid link error (in spanish).

    But when we remove the range parameter:

    {LINK  Excel.Sheet.12 C:\\Temp\\Text.xlsx  \a \f 4 \h}

    It works. This of course by default links only the first sheet by default. Anyone knows if this is a bug in Office for non-english? We are using Office 2010.
