Broken Excel Links in Inventor 2011


A nasty problem came to our attention recently concerning Inventor 2011 and links betwen parameters and Excel sheets. 

Everything seems fine initially until you change a value in the Excel cell.  Nothing updates in Inventor unless you manually relink to the attached Excel file.

Not good.

However, there is a hotfix to be found here

Ignore the fact that the hotfix title only refers to name changes.  It will fix the problem for all values.

Happy linking.
