Error-2146827284: File Does Not Exist When Opening Excel in LabVIEW

  • LabVIEW

Issue Details

I am trying to open an existing workbook in excel across the network. I can open all excel files if the workbooks are stored locally but can not open the same sheet from a network server.


There could be several reasons for this error
  • Ensure that the file path name includes the extension .xls
  • Check the file path is correct
  • Check to see if the file can openĀ on the network without using LabVIEW
