I try to convert my geodatabase to Excel. And i have a strange message:

FME API version of module 'XLS_ADO' matches current internal version (3.6 20101014) Trying to find a DYNAMIC plugin for reader named NULL' Loaded module 'NULL' from file 'C:\apps\FME\plugins/NULL.dll' FME API version of module 'NULL' matches current internal version (3.6 20101014) FME API version of module 'XLS_ADO' matches current internal version (3.6 20101014) FME API version of module 'XLS_ADO' matches current internal version (3.6 20101014) MS Excel Writer: Openingnull' for write operation MS Excel Writer: Connection failed. Connection string Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=null;Extended Properties="Excel 8.0;HDR=YES"'. Provider errorLa table externe n'est pas dans le format attendu.' Failed to open writer

The table is not in the expected format.

An idea ? Thanks

What does 'La table externe n'est pas dans le format attendu.' mean? Anyways, I think this happens when it can't find either the database (.xls OR .xlsx file) or the table (worksheet within the .xls or .xlsx file). –  blah238 Jun 10 '11 at 21:34

A solution for me ? –  twisig Jun 12 '11 at 23:24

The NULL module messages are a red herring. I believe the destination dataset has not been specified (a Python null passed instead?).

MS Excel Writer: Opening 'null' for write operation

MS Excel Writer: Connection failed. Connection string Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=null;Extended Properties="Excel 8.0;HDR=YES"'.

Specifying the path to the Excel file you wish to write to will probably resolve the issue.

The real problem is MS Excel Writer: Failed to write a feature of type feature' to the database. Provider errorExcel Table is full.'. Thanks for your help.

.xls format worksheets can only hold up to 65,536 rows, while .xlsx format worksheets can hold up to 1,048,576 rows. Check that these are not being exceeded. –  blah238 Jun 15 '11 at 19:24
