EXCEL VBA PIPutVal - wrong connection to the server. It tries to connect to localhost

I'm using PIPutval in Excel VBA.

I started with the Excel file piexam32.xls in C:\Program Files (x86)\PIPC\Excel.

I use the command : macroResult = Application.Run("PIPutValx", sTagname, valueCell, stime, sServer, resultCell)

But the result = "Cannot connect to server " and it gives my pc name and not the server name as it's put in sServer variable.

In Visual Basic, I did Break and Step Over to follow the values in variables and all is correct.


In PI-SMT, Log Message, I can see a successful login with Excel.exe and my laptop.

Does someone have already this issue ?


Thank you very much.
