    Error when connecting to Excel

    Scott Schmeling



          Does anyone know what this error means when connecting to Excel?  I see it in 2018.1.  I connect to the workbooks when I create the Tableau workbook and all is fine.  The next day when I go to open the Tableau Workbook I get this error when connecting to the Excel files:


      Unable to complete action

      IPC_NamedPipe::Select(WaitForMultipleObjects): Timeout

      IPC_NamedPipe::Select(WaitForMultipleObjects): Timeout


      I have found this for Access and Oracle online but not Excel.  Any ideas.
