Does PAX/PAfE Action Button work in Perspectives?

Post by Mark2007 » Fri Feb 19, 2021 5:57 am

Hi there,

sorry to ask, but I'm just trying out PAX / PAfE and migrated an existing Report to PAX, meaning that I ran the Utility to change the action buttons. I saved the file locally and opened it again in Excel/Perspectives (closed Excel/PAX before)

I notice, that the Pax Action Buttons does not work in Excel-Perspectives. Is this right or should it work? Than I would start to look for the problem.

PA-Server: PA 2.07
Excel Office 2016 (16.0.5122.1000) 64 bit
Perspectives 10.3.10700.60403

Thanks!

Regards

Mark

Action buttons aren't compatible Perspectives <-> PAfE. This is why the workbooks need to be upgraded with the utility. So yes it's normal or expected that if you open the workbook afterwards in Perspectives that the buttons won't work.
