Update to Create Time Dimension App

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Create Time Dimension

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:

app_error_w_ie8

APP ERROR

Sorry, we couldn’t load the app because your browser version is not supported. Click here for a list of supported browser versions.

Link to Microsoft support site about supported browser versions.

Snippet from the page:

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.
