"#NAME?" showing up instead of values...NEED HELP!

Gurus,

I need to write BPC reports to a network folder by the entity so that anyone who is not BPC user can access it. Is it possible? I have set up a book with the entity being varkey. The reports publish alright but if BPC is not running on users' machine, upon opeining the report, I get "#NAME?" in the names of fields instead of the actual names (like Account number or version number) though the values in the cells show up alright.

I would really appreciate insight into how to rectify this situation. Thanks.

    Matt - A user with a BPC account needs to logon, open up the report, refresh it, then do "eTools....Park N Go" and select the "OFFLINE" option, then SAVE the file again. Anyone now can read the file and the #NAME references will go away. BPC is funny about these files though - make sure you're logged OFF of BPC before opening up an OFFLINE file.

    Let me know if it works for you.
