Ipart edit via spreadheet not updating back to inventor

Using Inventor 2010 and Office 2010.

Have already done the registry trick so Excel launches.

 

I have created an Ipart and added a couple rows in Inventor. I can switch between them fine. I would like to add a lot more to this list by using Excel. I can right click the table and choose Edit Via Spreadsheet. Excel launches just fine with a REALLY long garbled filename.xls [compatibility mode] in the title bar of the window.

 

The full text of the parameters is visible.

 

The problem is, regardless of what change I make when I hit save and close the workbook - it doesn't go back to inventor. In inventor it's hanging. If i hit ESC a couple times it returns to usability, but any changes made via excel aren't added.

 

Is there something special that has to be done after the fact to get it to take? This is driving me nuts!
