Error: RE7.exe has stopped working -- when exporting Parent Class Analysis report to Excel

When exporting the preview of the Parent Class Analysis from The Raiser's Edge 7.93, the application freezes and the following error occurs: Error: RE7.exe has stopped working.

This was resolved in The Raiser's Edge 7.95, patch 3, which was released in July 2016 and applied to databases in Blackbaud Hosting Services. If your database is installed locally, download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable.

  5. Open Excel.
  6. From Excel, open the HTML file in Excel.
  7. Go to File > Save as.
  8. Save a copy of the file but change the file format to Excel.
