Hi All,

Please help me resolving this issue..

we are executing rrmx transaction code in BW through Portal, when we execute it Business explorer analyzer should be opened, it is working fine as expected when you do it from SAP Logon GUI but when you execute the transaction through Portal it gives an error "Please install suitable Excel version".

It works fine with SAP GUI Type "SAP GUI for Windows" but gives the error if we use "SAP GUI for HTML".

BW version is BW 3.5 patch 4

Portal EP 6.0 WAS 640 SP12

Thank you for your time.

BEx Analyzer does not have a verison for SAP GUI for HTML. It works only with SPA GUI for Windows as it is an add-in in excel.

Hi Aneesh/Ashwin,

Thanks a ton guys for replying back to this thread with the valuable information. I sincerely appreciate it.

Aneesh, I am sorry I gave you only 2 points for this answer as I did not find any links (where somebody from SAP confirms about this) which I can show it to my client.

Ashwin, I gave you 6 points as you have provided me a link in which Gerd Danner from Product Definition group - Netweaver confirms about it.

Anyways, you guys both helped me...

Thank you once again

Hi!

it will not work with "SAP GUI for HTML", it works only with windows GUI and MS office. SAP has not yet released a version of Bexanalyzer which work with other office software. there was a discussion on this in SDN in 2004 (somewhere from april to august) subject was BW on linux.

I will post the link if i found it..

with regards

Vasu ,

for executing the transacton through Portal , make sure you have enablked the integrated ITS that comes along with WAS 6.4.

Also are you able to run other transactions of BW from the POrtal ?
