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.

Hello Som,

it is possible that transaction rrmx is not released for use with SAP GUI for HTML - check its transaction classification in SE93. From the error message, it appears to make use of Office Integration, which is not fully supported in SAP GUI for HTML. See note 314568.

I would suggest to open a message on component BW-BEX to get an official statement on the use of rrmx in frontends other than the SAP GUI for Windows.
