    Hi Jordan,

    Not sure about the error message you're getting but the greyed out Edit Report could be caused by a Microsoft update.

    SAP Note:

    2107965 - Issues in EPM Add-in after installing Microsoft updates

       

    Workaround from SAP:

    Delete any "MSForms.exd" files in any subfolder of the "C:\Users\[user.name]\AppData\Local\Temp\" folder.

    Depending on the specific applications installed on your desktop you may find this file in a variety of sub-folders:

    • C:\Users\[user.name]\AppData\Local\Temp\Excel8.0\MSForms.exd
    • C:\Users\[user.name]\AppData\Local\Temp\VBE\MSForms.exd
    • C:\Users\[user.name]\AppData\Local\Temp\Word8.0\MSForms.exd
    • C:\Users\[user.name]\AppData\Local\Temp\2\Excel8.0\MSForms.exd

    etc...

    /Cecilia
