I'm prompted to link a workbook that is already linked

If you're being prompted to link a workbook you've already linked mostly likely you created a copy (or did a "Save as") of the workbook so it doesn't recognized that it's linked.

To fix this issue:

  1. Locate and open your original workbook

Getting a "cannot access the file" error when trying to install the Excel add-in

Often times this error is presented, but the add-in was successfully installed. After seeing this error you can confirm that the add-in was installed by going to the Insert ribbon, then choose "My Add-ins" and then add the Automated Bank Feeds add-in to your Excel application.

One workaround is to follow the steps for using Excel Online. You can use Excel Online to install the add-in and load it with your data. You'll need to use the Excel Online add-in to update it each time, but then you can open it with the Excel application to make changes.

"Failed to read the 'localStorage' property from 'Window' error

This error happens when you try to sign in to Tiller Money Feeds add-in via Excel Online (browser/cloud based Excel) and you are blocking 3rd party cookies.

To fix:

  1. Enable 3rd party cookies in your browser for https://onedrive.live:443 as depicted in the screenshot below.

Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0 error during a fill

This error happens when too much data is trying to be filled at one time. Generally this only happens if you have several years of data in Tiller's databases, many accounts (more than 20) and you're trying to fill all that data into a workbook for the first time.

To address this error and get your data successfully filled into the sheet, try filling the sheet in batches. Configure the linked accounts and toggle most of them off then fill the sheet for a few accounts at a time until you get all the accounts' data filled into the sheet. Subsequent fills should work fine.

Add-in unresponsive when I click "Sign in to Tiller"

You're clicking the Sign in to Tiller button in the add-in task pane and nothing is happening. This likely means that you need to install Windows or Office updates. Run Windows Update and Office Update to install all available updates until it indicates that there are no more updates to install.

The add-in disappears from the Data ribbon

We are aware of this issue with needing to re-add the add-in affecting some customers and we're working with Microsoft to understand the cause and get it resolved.

In the meantime you can access and re-add the add-in from the Insert ribbon > My Add-ins.

We also recommend that you make sure you have 3rd party cookies enabled as this can interfere with the add-in persisting on the Data ribbon.

If you'd like to help us troubleshoot this issue with Microsoft, please follow these steps and send back the two session IDs as directed in the steps below and be sure to submit the feedback form to Microsoft as directed below.

  1. Open your Excel workbook where you have already installed the Tiller Money Feeds add-in and verify it is still installed by clicking on the Insert ribbon > My add-ins

  2. Click "Add" to re-add it to the Data Ribbon. Confirm it appears there.

  3. IMPORTANT: Copy and paste the session ID associated with your session from the File menu > Account > About Excel (screenshots below) into a message to us from the Chat tool in the lower right corner of this page > Send us a message > Tiller Money Feeds sidebar.

  4. Save your workbook and close it.

  5. Re-open your workbook and confirm the Tiller Money Feeds add-in does NOT appear on the Data ribbon.

  6. IMPORTANT: If it's not appearing there, copy and paste the the session ID associated with this second session from the File menu > Account > About Excel into the chat you started. It will be a different session ID.

  7. Navigate to File menu/tab then click the Feedback button in the top right next to the logged in user info (screenshot below). Use the following text in the first field "The Tiller Money Feeds add-in is not persisting on the data ribbon even though I already have it installed. I have to add it back from Insert > My add-ins window each time I re-open my workbook after saving it."
