Reinstalling your operating system may cause you to loose your previous projects in the Semantria Excel add-in. Here are some easy steps to avoid this:
- Save the “Semantria.dat” and “Semantria.db” files from the "%appdata%\Semantria\ExcelAddIn" path to a safe place. (Get here by pressing the “Windows+R” shortcut in your OS, put “%appdata%\Semantria\ExcelAddIn” into the input field, and press “OK”)
- After reinstalling the operating system, reinstall the Semantria Excel Add-in, and login with your API keys. When the authentication is successful, the buttons in the Excel Ribbon will become active.
- Close Excel.
- Copy the “Semantria.dat” and “Semantria.db” files you saved from your old system to the new one under the "%appdata%\Semantria\ExcelAddIn" path. Follow the same process as in step 1 to find the path.
- Open Excel, run the add-in and check to see if your old projects appear.
***This process also applies for updating to new versions of Excel. To uninstall old versions of the Semantria Excel Add-in, go to into the control panel, select 'Programs', in 'Programs and Features' select to uninstall the Semantria Excel Add-in, and then continue onto step 2. Don't forget to save the .dat and .db files first!
