IBP add-in 64-bit compatible issue

Dear Expert,

I got an issue when I open the excel after installed IBP add-in.
1. When I open a blank worksheet, there will be always Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications opening and alert me with the compile error below:
The code in this project must be updated for use on 64-bit systems

2. I close that Compile error but when I use IBP Excel UI, the IBP Excel UI is always saying that "SAP_IBP_Chart.xlam missing or not activated"

3. I have checked that SAP_IBP_Chart.xlam file is already there

Could you kindly suggest what was wrong here? I have tried to uninstall/re-install the 64 bit IBP plugin many times but no luck to fix this.

Here are my system information:

  • Microsoft Windows 10 OS
  • Microsoft Excel 2016
  • IBP add on - IBPEXCELADDON03_0-80004171

    I was able to fix this by myself by using a new SAP_IBP_chart.xlam file. If anyone has similar issue here, please feel free to reach me.

    • Hello Yanbing,

      I followed in detail the instructions of note 2806360, downloaded the latest version of the SAP_IBP_Chart.xlam file, but get still the same error as shown above. I have a 64-bit Excel version (Microsoft 365), and Exel IBP Addin version 2005.2.0.

      Any advice very welcom!

      Best regards - Christian

    Hi Yanbing,

    That's the right approach indeed, from your screenshot it seems that you had an obsolete version from 2017. Just for general information, the most up to date version can always be found on Note: 1790530
