          I have been using Office 2010 with Monarch 10.5 for a couple of months and have not encountered any issues thus far.

              Coincidentally, I just recently installed Office 2010, and it seems to be going very well wihen working with Monarch and Excel. I've only found one issue so far: slicers cannot be added to pivot tables created by Monarch. The table itself works properly though.

               

              I haven't done any real testing with Access as yet as it's only been a few days since I've had Office 2010.

                  Interesting, we haven't delved into slicers yet but will keep your observation in mind :eek:

                   

                  Basic import/export with Access works according to Hoyle. But on a non-Monarch related note none of the Access files I have opens by clicking the file but must be opened from within Access. Must be a setting somewhere:confused:

                   

                  Speaking of settings - in migrating from Office 2007 we found a fair number of settings had to be massaged to get desired behavior.

                      The most annoying issue that I found (immediately) as a result of migrating to Office 2007 was its inability to properly open files with the .xls extension by double-clicking a file on the desktop or in a folder.

                       

                      What's the first thing that someone who works with Excel every day is going to do? Open one of the files that they use regularly.

                       

                      I finally found that I had to manually adjust the parameters used for the file type association in the Windows shell. Then I had to do it again after an Office patch was applied some time later. Grrr...

                       

                      I probably wouldn't have found this to be so bad if it was discovered right after the initial product launch, but this was last October!
