Aspose.Cells Reporting Services - cannot find XLA

Hello,

I have downloaded the most recent trial of Aspose Cells for Reporting Services and installed only the client part. I have Visual Studio 2008 SP 1, SQL Server Express 2008 with Advanced Tools and Office 2003 installed.

I would like to test the report designer in Excel 2003. However, when I select “Aspose Cells Reporting Services Client” from the AddIn list in Excel, then Excel reports that it could not find Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.Client.xla.

I have not changed the default installation folder during the installation. How can I solve this problem? Do I have to register the add-in?

Thanks for your help,
Mario

Hi,<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thank you for sharing the details about your issue and log file. We will look into it and get back to you soon.

Thank You & Best Regards,

With the installation from your download link above, the AddIn loads correctly in Excel.


Now I am trying to connect to the local Reporting Services server. I have installed SQL Server with Advanced Tools and did not change the installation defaults for Reporting Services.

If I click on “View Report” in Excel, then Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices asks for the report server URL. I tried “http://localhost/reportserver_sqlexpress” and several variants but I keep receiving a message from Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices telling me that the connection failed.

1. Do you know about a way to find the correct report server URL?

2. Isn’t it possible to view the report without Reporting Services just by loading the data into MS Excel as with any other external datasource?

Regards, Mario

Thank you for considering Aspose.

You can use IE test report server URL. If IE can browse and view report, the URL is correct.

e.g. http://192.168.0.118/ReportServer ,Please input correct username and password.

2. Isn't it possible to view the report without Reporting Services just by loading the data into MS Excel as with any other external datasource?

First, you must install Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices server component at server. Second, the report can be normally view through IE.

Please add debug information in log.

1. Please modify the log parameter in Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.xml file.

2. Please do your oparetions again.

3. Check Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.log in ${installation folder} folder and post log file here. We will check it.

4. If you do not find Aspose.Cells.ReportingServices.log file ,please modify installation folder permission.

Thank You & Best Regards,
