Index Creation Failed / BusinessObjects Explorer

Hello Experts ,

I am trying to create Explorer information space from a uniiverse file based on an excel spreadsheet.

When I attempt to Index the information space, I receive the following error :

"Index Creation Failed (The execution of the specified analysis query failed.-A database error occured. The database error text is: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified. (WIS 10901))"

The universe was created based on an excel file present in the local machine. In the local machine, I have

added this excel document in ODBC data source administrator.

Could you please suggest ?

Regards ,

    Hello ,

    The ODBC settings were not done on the right Server and hence the issue at Explorer.

    Regards ,
