Trying to relink Excel sheet tables in InDesign CC2015 I often (but not always) get this warning: "Cannot update link for /filename.xlsx. Please place the document again to reset the link".
The table was already linked when imported and then formatted in ID. I can't understand why some tables get this warning and this is frustrating.
Any help is welcome!
Did you ever get an answer on this? Just started happening to me.
Would it be possible to share the excel file with which you are facing this issue. Please send the excel file at following E-mail ID : SharePrefsWithID@adobe.com.
Thanks & Regards
I encountered similar problems with a linked named range in an Excel spreadsheet. I got the same error when trying to relink the linked table to another Excel file. For me, the issue was resolved when I renamed both the spreadsheet (i.e. tab inside the workbook) and the named range to exactly match those in the original linked file.
Also, I noticed that named ranges are not shown in the link options dialogue if the spreadsheet name has spaces or periods.
