The file cannot be opened in Microsoft Excel

I am trying to upload a glossary in xls format to MultiTerm Converter but the programme replies with "The conversion option could not be initialised properly. The file cannot be opened in Microsoft Excel". It is the first time I have used MultiTerm Converter.

I use MS Office 2016. Please note that I cannot use Glossary Converter either.

Thank you in advance for your help.

  • Hi Walter,

    I know it's the best choice, everybody recommends it, but when I open it I get something that translated from Italian roughly says "Impossible to find Microsoft Excel; spreadsheets formats (xls, xlsx,txt, csv) are not available". If I drag and drop my Excel glossary, the perimeter of the Glossary Converter box becomes red and I just can't drop it...
