The following error occurs when trying to make a connection to an Excel file:
"Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 126: The specified module could not be found. (Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls, *.xlsx, *.xlsm, *.xlsb), C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\MicrosoftShared\OFFICE16\ACEODBC.DLL)."
When checking for the Excel version installed, we read the registry for the version of Excel application. Then we get the drivers for the bitness of the app. If we find the Microsoft Excel driver we use it. If we don't find, we prompt the user to install. This is as designed and correct behavior. The load error seems to have occurred because the Excel installation was not complete. After investigation, it has been determined that no further action is needed. No defect.
