Does Automate 10 Support opening an Excel Workbook Session for an Excel Binary file.


Such as:


<AMEXCELCREATEWORKBOOK WORKBOOK="\\Automate\Reporting\Monthly\M11670_1.xlsb" SESSION="Excel" OVERWRITE="YES" />

V10 can open an existing xlsb, but it fails when trying to create one.

Automate 10 does not support opening/creating Excel binary files. This has been added to our feature request database for a later date (F564).
