Alation has confirmed a bug in Excel for Mac 16.10 and 16.11 which causes Excel to crash after clicking “Refresh Data” in a workbook generated by the Alation Excel Live Report feature.  There is no known workaround with Excel for Mac 16, but it is possible to revert to Excel for Mac 15, which does not have the bug.
