Currently we have excel 2010 and datalink 5.0 (2013). We are in the process of upgrading excel to 2016 version. Is it possible to run datalink 5.0 (2013) on excel 2016
An upgrade of Excel may be a good time to also push an upgrade of DataLink. PI DataLink 5.2 (2015) is the first supported version on Excel 2016.
Please review KB01230 - PI DataLink Compatibility Charthttps://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/KB/KB01230/
What is the error we get when running PI Datalink 5.0 (2013) on excel 2016 ?
Incompatibility is not indicated by a specific error, but you will see some functionalities work, other not and inconsistent behavior. We have not tested that version on Excel 2016, thus we cannot comment exactly as to what you will be experiencing.
If you are going to upgrade Excel, why not also upgrade PI Datalink to a supported version?
Sure this is what we gonna do, just wanted to make sure we are doing the right thing.
Thanks for the quick help...
No worries - sounds good!
