Our company recently upgraded everyone to Office 2010, the 64 bit version. This broke the functionality of the HP Excel ADD IN for Quality Center that I had been using. I prefer to write my test cases in Excel and then export them to Quality Center.

Has anyone found a workaround? HP does not currently have a solution.

We had a number of things break when upgrading to Office 2010 on our webapps. Granted they're homebrew, not HP, but as yet there's no workarounds we've found. I suspect it is a fundamental change in the API which can only be fixed by changing how the tool itself interacts with Excel. I know this isn't very encouraging :-( –  corsiKa Jun 12 '12 at 20:30
    
Thanks corsiKa. Not encouraging, but it is informative. We've also noticed that the Document Generator feature was broken as well, since it cannot interface with 64 bit version of Word. –  John Oglesby Jun 14 '12 at 13:57

Our shop uses ALM 11.00 (new version of QC) but on the add-in page it specifically says the following Excel versions are supported:

Versions supported: Microsoft Excel 2007 and 2010 (32 bit) with HP ALM 11.00.

I would uninstall office 2010 and restall it as a 32 bit version. THe 32 bit version works on a 64 bit machine and I'm able to use the excel plugin without issue.
