Opening WebAdi Spreadsheet, once the user starts editing the file, Excel Calculation Options change from Automatic to Manual, disablig therefore calculation capabilities. If more WebAdi spreadsheets were openend, the same change would apply to the remaining spreadsheets.

Expected that loading data to Gl should not change Excel settings for other spreadsheets

STEPS

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Gl Responsibility > Create new spreadsheet in WebAdi using text file import
2. Repeat step1 to open at least one more WebAdi spreadsheet (optional)
