Cognos for MS Office 10.2.2 IF1 - doesn't recognize existing links

IF1 is supposed to add support for Excel 2016, and it does work but only for brand new spreadsheets.  When opening spreadsheets that have existing links to reports/queries, they do not appear in the plugin.  This is a serious problem for us as we'd have to relink many existing spreadsheets.

Wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem.
Timing is everything.


We have the same problem in office 2010 - add-in 10.2.2 doesn't recognise existing links (often it happens in power point + only some users have this problem). Any suggests?

Hello All

I have this issue using cognos 10.1.x
has anyone experienced this issue with cognos 10.2.x ?



No, this issue specifically occurs in 10.2.2 when trying to open spreadsheets made with previous versions.
