Excel services - application ID RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am in an environment where excel services files and olap files are not refreshing in the browser. There may be other issues although the viewers group and trusted bits etc seem ok. I have noticed that the Application ID on the Global Settings tab of Excel Services was set some time ago to UnattendedExcelAccount. I expected to see ProjectServerApplication.

    Are there any circumstances where UnattendedExcelAccount would be the correct setting.

    It looks as though the UnattendedExcelAccount is setup as individual rather than group pointing to a default page rather than none.

    There are other groups using excel services so I'm keen not to make correcting changes that could negatively impact them.

  • Hello,

    I don't normal set anything in the Excel Service App Global settings page, just leave these as default. What errors are you seeing in the ULS logs when trying to refresh? Do you see the same error for both OLAP based reports and Reporting DB based reports?
