Using the Drill option in 64-bit IBM Cognos TM1 Perspectives causes an "Excel Stack Exceeded" error.

Product Readmes


The IBM® Cognos® TM1® Perspectives Drill option on a 64-bit machine in version 10.2.2 causes an error.


In the 64-bit version of Microsoft® Excel running TM1 Perspectives, when you right-click on any cell with numeric values and select Drill, the "Excel Stack Exceeded" error displays and you cannot drill-through.

This problem does not occur in the 32-bit version of Excel with Perspectives.

There is currently no workaround for this issue except to use the 32-bit version of TM1 Perspectives.
