Error with Excel data sources in Migrated Webi Report

Hi,

We have recently had our Development Business Objects installation upgraded to version 4.2 Support Pack 7 Patch 4 from 4.1 SP6.

we are now testing the installation and have found an issue with Excel data sources.

When we are logged into LaunchPad and are looking at a report that contains an Excel data source they get an error message when clicking Edit settings. This happens when they are logged in as a report developer and also as an administrator.

Any advice on this.

Thanks,

Amar

    Hi Amar,

    We are also facing the same issue.

    but we did a change data source for that query and it started working,

    currently, we raise a ticket with sap for the issue.
