sometimes the precalculated workbooks are corrupted. The precalculated workbook service was executed in the BEx Broadcaster functionality (Web).

Where can I trace the errors? (the rsprecadmin transcation didn't work out)

Why sometimes precalculated workbooks are damaged???

Thanks in advance.

6. Ensure that the latest version of .NET 1.1, SAP GUI 6.40, and Excel are well.

7. Look at the BEx Precalculation Server log at:

C:\windows\temp\BExPrecalcLog.txt and check to see if there are any issues.

8. Look at the SAPBEx.trc log from the Frontend as well

9. If you're using Windows XP/2000 as the precalculation

server, and the "Allow service to interact with desktop" is flagged, it should work correctly. If it isn't working

correctly from the web, test queuing functionality using

program RS_PREC_PLAN. If it works using this program, but
