Error when trying to export to new matrix workbook

When I try to export to a new matrix workbook I get the error below.  Exporting to a new NodeXL workbook is fine.

I can't reproduce the problem, so I'm wondering if there is some type of NodeXL workbook data that I didn't test.

Does this occur when you try exporting a simple one-edge workbook to a new matrix workbook?  In other words, what happens when you create a new NodeXL workbook, enter "X" and "Y" into cells A3 and B3 of the Edges worksheet, and then export to a new matrix workbook?

I can confirm that exporting a simple one-edge workbook to a new matrix works fine, so it must be something in my data that's sending it awry.

I'll see if I can give you more info or post the actual dataset to you.

Best regards, Dave.

Separately, I've sent you a temporary email address where you can send me the workbook, if it's something that can be shared.
