Working on SQL Converter for Excel Refresh for 64-bit Excel

Even though Microsoft is known for being fanatical about maintaining backwards compatibility, SQL Converter for Excel apparently doesn’t work so well in 64-bit Excel 2010 on Windows 7.  Unfortunately that was an environment that we did not have on any of our systems.  I am configuring a new copy Windows 7 Pro in a Parallels virtual machine so that I can get a refresh working.

In the mean time, check out our new Expert Conversion Service at http://www.sqlconverter.com/expert.html.
