When I get a prompt that says the system could not locate XLQUERY when I try to access a file, and that pursuing further might lead to inaccuracies; where in the process did I make a mistake and what are steps I can take to resolve this problem?
I get a prompt that says the system could not locate XLQUERY
Yes, many people face this XLQUERY problem.
The XLQUERY.xla file is located in C: drive > Program File >Microsoft Office >Office11 >Library>Msquery.
The probable causes are:
This file has been damaged.
The file is attacked by Virus or Trojan.
The file has been removed.
The excel file you are working is saved or created in Excel 5.0/95 format. When this happens, excels files query job is unable to access the XLQUERY file in a proper manner. Thus, an error is generated regarding XLQUERY file.
My suggestions are:
In case of damage, reinstall office program or excel program again.
Reinstall Windows and antivirus. Scan the whole PC with the antivirus and install office program.
Make a backup of XLQUERY.xla from C: drive > Program File > Microsoft Office > Office11 > Library > Msquery. When the file is damaged or missing again, just replace it from the backup.
Save the excel file in the current version’s excel format.
