Excel Web access RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have error message as :

    Excel Web access - An error has occurred. Please contact your server admin if this problem persists.

    Then I google for answer to try to resolve the issue. Then I found some workarround http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointgenerallegacy/thread/c0c59a6a-1cf6-4280-a2ca-9667b2cadd33 as:

    Firstly, please check the web.config has the following section:

    <location path="XXXXX/ExcelCalculationServer" allowOverride="true" inheritInChildApplications="true">
            <system.web>
                <authorization>
                    <allow users="*" />
                </authorization>
            </system.web>
        </location>

    The web.config is located at: %program files%\\Microsoft Office Server\12.0\WebServices\Root\Web.Config.

    1.  How many <location .. /location> tag can I have?

    2.  XXXXX --> what it stands for? it is Farm server name?

    3. web.config can be reusmed if sharepoint server configuration goes wrong?

    Thank you for your prompt reply. And my contact email is fchu@caelum.com.
