From the Excel top menu, click Insert->Name->Define
.In the Define Name dialog box, input TM1REBUILDOPTION
.Set the value in the Refers to box to 0 and click OK.

Go to Files->Options and enter a valid folder in the Data Directory box. if that box is greyed out then you need to edit manually the variable in your tm1p.ini stored on your PC.
