    connection to Excel: DataValue::MakeSpecial: bad argument

    Johan de Groot

      While updating the Excel extracts from a workbook I encountered that one connection is totally broken; Tableau returns with an error:

       

      DataValue::MakeSpecial: bad argument

       

      A new connection to the same Excel file/sheet is no problem, but I can't connect to that file anymore with the existing connection. Does anyone know if this either a Tableau or Excel error?
