French language support in Create Time Dimension App

With the most excellent help of Microsoft Excel MVP Frédéric LE GUEN there is now a French language option in the Create Time Dimension App. As expected, it will generate all headings and names in French.

Please visit the following sites for more information on Excel from Frédéric:

Release 3 of Create Time Dimension App now available

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Create Time Dimension

Release 3 of the Create Time Dimension App is now live. This version brings Czech language support and ISO-8601 week numbers.

The update is made on the server so it is available for everyone right away, no update needed on the Excel/Client side.

Big thanks to Petr Havlik (Twitter: https://twitter.com/petrhavlik) for helping with the Czech translation.

Please note that the ISO-8601 week numbers are just one way of expressing week numbers and might not be what you want. The week numbers start on Mondays per definition and does not change when changing the week start day. If you would like to use another week numbering format you can still add a column using the =WEEKNUM(date, week number system) formula in Excel.

Update to Create Time Dimension App

I have published an update to the Create Time Dimension Application for Excel that includes a new Date Integer Id column (in the format 20130616 for June 16, 2013) and Dutch language support.

The update is made on the server so it is available for everyone right away, no update needed on the Excel/Client side.

Big thanks to Frederik Vandeputte (Web: http://www.vandeputte.org/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/frederikvdp) for suggesting the id column and helping with the Dutch translations.

When installing and running Office Excel 2013 on a host operating system where an Internet Explorer version earlier than IE9 apps will not work. Instead the the following error message will be displayed:

Apps for Office on the desktop

To host the apps for Office in the Word, Excel, Outlook, and Project desktop programs, use at least Internet Explorer 9 with at least MS12-037: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer: June 12, 2012 installed.

The solution to this problem is to upgrade to a supported browser type and version.
