Has anyone experienced this issue before?

Report Builder works fine for me in other Excel workbooks, but certain files shows this when I go to 'Manage' option of Report Builder.

I'm running version 5.6.23.0 currently which I believe is up to date.

After deleting the Data Connection the menus are now visible.

Can this be investigated further as I believe it's a limitation of Report Builder?

Hi,

I think the issue only occurs in workbooks containing data tables.

I have a direct connection to our SAS server that pulls a data feed into an Excel data table.

When I try to open Report Builder in these workbooks I see these images:

Here is the data connection:

Is this a limitable of Report Builder, or a compatibility issue between Excel and Report Builder?

Are you able to replicate this issue?

Thanks,

James

For the sake of troubleshooting the issue, does the issue fix itself when you reduce the number of tabs, or if you remove the connections to your data warehouse?

Another thing you could try is uninstalling/reinstalling Report Builder - occasionally that does the trick as well.

Hi,

Yes the workbooks where this happens are quite large in terms of number of tabs, but not in size (less than 1MB in some instances).

They do have data connections to our data warehouse, but previously this wasn't an issue.

It's only within the last month or two that I'm getting the image provided in my initial post.

Thanks,

James

Hi James,

You're saying this only happens with some workbooks, and not others? Are the workbooks that exhibit this issue particularly complex?
