Project 2007 (with server) - Visual reports custom templates export problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    someone fimiliar with this situation?

    While creating and saving a new template in visual report using Project Professional 2007, some of the reports that was saved as template lose connection between Project cube and Excel.

    Those reports include Enterprise global custom fields, and on the first few times I open them (on different computers) it works fine but later some of the report templates won’t open, and error messages are received.

    Those are the steps I did to reproduce the problem:

    When I create the template I used “New template” and then I added the fields (some of the templates are “Task usage” based, and some “Task summary” based).

    Then when I try to open it later…

    Step 1 –Open the template

    Step 2 – the export gets stuck –

    Step 3 – if I check the excel that was opened I get error messages -

    Step 4 – another error message (after clicking OK on the previous one)

    When clicking OK or Cancel the excel is closed

    Step 5 – when going back to check visual reports on project another error appears
