SAP EPM EPMPathLink and Excel 2016 C2R

Nov 10, 2017 at 01:18 AM

We are using EPM 10.0 SP 28 .NET 4.5 Build 9843.

A number of our templates use EPMPathLink formulae to navigate between templates.

On Excel 2016 32-bit these work fine.

But on Microsoft Surface Pros, with Office 3605 ProPlus Version 1706 Click-to-run the EPMPathLink formula do not fire. Instead when we double-click the cell changes to a zero '0'.

Has anyone seen this issue? If so is there any workaround?

Thanks in advance

We made a little progress and found that the following VBA placed in the sheet with the EPMPathlink, EPMLink, EPMUrl formula made them start to work.

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean) 
  Application.Wait Now + TimeValue("0:00:01") 
End Sub

Then it's a bug and have to be reported to SAP support.
