Description

The compatibility issues relating to the Financial Report Designer (FRD) are specific to the BITools (Layout Generator) not functioning correctly and the Taskpane Not Showing/Loading.

Cause

The FRD was created before Microsoft office 2016 was launched and therefore these issues were not foreseen.

Resolution

The resolution is to download and install the Excel 2016 Compatibility Pack below, which has the latest components in order to make the FRD work as per design.

NB : Before installing the pack make sure that you have watched the install guide for proper installation
