In MYOB Document Manager (DM) after the upgrade to version 4.0.7, you may experience all spreadsheets that had a status of In Progress now having the Reference Number included when previewing or printing. Or you may experience the spreadsheets taking a long time to open if it has multiple tabs.

To fix these issues, you need to turn off the reference number feature.

This is a system-wide setting; these instructions will apply to all Excel documents.
  1. In AE or AO, go to Maintenance > Maintenance Maps > Documents > Document Manager Setup.
  2. Select Application.
  3. Deselect the Show reference number in footer for MS Excel documents checkbox.
    This setting will now apply to any Excel documents opened thereafter.
