This is a good read from the official support blog for Inventor, “Being Inventive“. According to the post, it’s confirmed. Inventor 2010 (and obviously all previous versions) does not yet support Excel 2010. I may have to try this out, but I’m fairly certain there is a path to installing Office 2010, uninstalling Excel 2010 and then reinstalling Excel 2007. This will keep Inventor working and satisfy your appetite for the latest and greatest software from Microsoft.
