Is there anything I need to do?
Microsoft is currently investigating the issues and will update the links above when a solution is available. So if these updates affect your version of Microsoft, please be sure to keep a close eye on the above links.
Please be aware that while it has been reported that uninstalling KB4504726 for Microsoft Office 2013 and KB4504722 for Microsoft Office 2016 has then allowed the Sage 200 Business Intelligence reports to be generated, we do not recommend this. As these are security updates provided by another software vendor, you should speak to your IT department.
How can we help?
We understand that many of our customers use Sage 200 Business Intelligence and these issues following Microsoft update are inconvenient. But as Sage 200 Business Intelligence needs Excel add-ins to function, Sage are reliant on Microsoft identifying a solution before we can proceed.
Therefore, we will stay in close contact with Sage and Microsoft to ensure we can update you as a matter of urgency when a solution is found.
Microsoft has released further updates for Office versions 2013 and 2016, that resolve the issue. Details on how to install Microsoft updates can be found on the Microsoft website.
As this update is provided by Microsoft (as opposed to Sage or Smith Cooper), it is strongly advised that you speak to your IT/Support Department prior to applying it yourself.
