We just upgraded to MS Office XP and now the Export to Excal tool on the Peachtree tool bar is disabled. Has anyone else encountered this and found a working solution? We need to use this feature so that we can email documents.

I got this response in the Peachtree Usenet group. It fixed the problem.


Make sure that you backup your registry before you do this. If you are not fimilar with the registry, PLEASE have someone do this that is technically astute.

1) Click start-Run then type regedit.

2) Collapse the folder HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application\CurVer
until you see the string value name (Default). Modify the (Default) value to be Excel.Application.9 instead of Excel.Application.10

3) Collapse the folder HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application.10. and Rename this folder to Excel.Application.9.

4)That's It!! Your Excel button should be back in Peachtree. This
will not damage or interfere with any of your Microsoft products or your Peachtree application.

If you see any problems, just change the
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application\CurVer string value back to Excel.Application.10 and rename the
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application.9 back
to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Excel.Application.10.

This is a very simple fix!!! Bad Peachtree!!! Go to your room!
