This is my first time trying to use the CombiChem for Excel function. I can enter my reaction, I go to "Reactants", click on "Make reactant worksheets", then...nothing. The program doesn't freeze, I can click on "Make reactant worksheets" again, and nothing.

I have tried "Map Reaction Atoms" in the Reactions menu, and that maps the reaction atoms, but doesn't fix the Make Reactant Worksheets issue.

If I go to "Options" > "Experiments..." and "New" I get the error message, Experiments can only be generated from a valid Reaction sheet.

The other ChemOffice18 for Excel features seem to work for me.

Any help would be appreciated!

Assuming you have ChemOffice Professional or ChemDraw Professional license.

You will get the steps in the "CombiChem/Excel Webinar" . You can download the recorded video from the following link.
