Use Workbook Conversion to convert workbooks made in versions 3.1 through 3.4 of the Excel Add-in to be compatible with Series 4 versions.
Workbooks created in Series 4 of the Excel Add-in are not backwards compatible with Series 3. Workbooks created in, or converted to, Series 4 cannot be opened in Series 3.
If you convert a workbook to be compatible with Series 4, you can choose to save a back-up of the original workbook. You can use the back-up with the version of the Add-in it was converted from.
To convert a workbook:
- Open a workbook created in Series 3 of the Excel Add-in.
The Workbook Conversion button displays on the Anaplan ribbon.
- Click Workbook Conversion.
The Workbook Conversion dialog displays.
Select Keep a copy of the current workbook if you want to keep a back-up of your Series 3 workbook.
- Click OK.
The workbook converts and a backup copy of your original workbook is saved to your device.
If you selected Keep a copy of the current workbook, a link to your back-up copy displays. The back-up saves into the same folder as the original workbook, with _backup appended to the end of the file name.
- Click Close.
Your workbook is ready to use with Series 4 of the Excel Add-in.
