Personas 3.0: Linked excel document cannot be opened

Hi Personas 3.0 experts,

I am running a custimised tcode where there is a backend button which can open an excel document. It works fine in SAPGUI, but in Personas nothing happened after pressing the button. Could this be due to the whitelist issue?

Any ideas? Thanks.

Br,


Dong Zhu

    Hello Dong,

    does it work in the WebGui without any flavor applied?

    Thanks,

    Clemens

    This is probably due to the involvement of OLE in the SAP GUI. This will not work in Personas since the same doesn't work in the webgui either.

    As Clemens said, try doing the same using the webgui to see if the issue is Personas-related or not.

      Hi Tamas,

      In WebGui, Basic Vew works but my flavor does not. In fact in a clean copy flavor the btn works, but afer customise UI layout etc, the btn does not work any more. What I can see is that the UI gets refreshed once. Any idea?

    Hi Tamas,

    The backend button that did not open the doc was a clone of the original button on the toolbar, and the original button as somehow deleted. I tried other toolbar buttons and they all behaviour the same way - the clone button of the toolbar button did not work. Is this a bug?

    I tried more tests:

    - Make a clean copy of the Basic view, the backend button work.

    - Make a clone button of the backend button, the clone button does not work.

    - I try to re-do the UI, make a copy flavor, do customization of the copy flavor, then the backend button stop working.


    Thanks.

    Br,

    Shared info:

    The cause is that the button causes the onAfterRefresh screen event triggered. As long as a script (event empty script) is attached to this event, the button stops working.

    Any idea to solve this?
