    Trouble connecting to Excel - IPC_NamedPipe::Select(WaitForMultipleObjects): Timeout

    Jamie Muetzel

      I re-installed the Access drivers and that didn't work for me.  So frustrating.  I had to open a ticket and get new Oracle drivers for that to work and now I can't even connect to a simple excel spreadsheet.  Reinstalled access drivers and still get this stupid error. I have deadlines to meet and don't have time to fool around with these silly errors.  I thought upgrading was the right thing to do.  I'm on 2018.1.3 just like my company and the corporate server. Ugh!  Does anyone have any other ideas, because opening a ticket is a slooooooooooooooow process.  I took days for them to figure out the Oracle driver situation.  My deadline is noon tomorrow.  This is the error and I'm not trying to open multiple objects.
