I had similar error messages with Frame files with OLE links to Excel spreadsheets, but mostly randomly--sometimes I had the Excel file open by mistake, and that might have triggered it, I'm not sure. I could never find the exact cause. Was running Frame 7.1 on XP, SP2.
A colleague told me she got those errors all the time (same OLE links to Excel files). She's going to be upgrading to Frame 8, but she's getting a new computer as well, so there are too many variables there to narrow down one cause if it ends up fixing her problem. Have upgraded to Frame 8, still XP, SP2. Haven't had it that long, but I haven't had any error messages so far. Doesn't mean that the upgrade fixed the problem, though. Using PDF's or graphics isn't a good fix for me, because we're linking to parts lists that appear in the product manual and a separate parts book for the entire product line. The advantage of OLE links to the Excel files is that it's always linked to the latest and greatest version. So thanks for the heads-up about SP3. I don't know if our IS dept. will be rolling that out soon or not. Fortunately, I don't believe there are any imminent plans to upgrade us to Vista. -Lise On Fri, Jun 20, 2008 at 10:16 AM, Art Campbell <art.campbell at gmail.com> wrote: > If you search back through the archives and/or visit the Frame user's > forum on Adobe.com, you'll see that this has been a pretty common > topic since Microsoft released SP3 for XP.
