Hi All,

When I execute the precalculation from within the portal (Business Explorer -> BEx broadcaster) I can see that a new browser screen is openend. This one stays empty/blanc. On the precalculation server I can see the the request is parsed trough (see below)

This is purely because the excel version in precalculation server and the size of the workbook.

Hanging When Opening a Workbook (Microsoft Excel)

it could be that there really is no problem with the workbook at all. If the workbook is very large and was created in an older versions of Excel, and you are opening it in Excel 2003, then there could be a long delay as the workbook is opened. This is because the newer versions of Excel rebuild the calculation tables associated with the workbook; rebuilding those can take some time to do for workbooks with lots of calculations.
