Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.0 to 11.1.1.9.170718 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Followed the document https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E72988_01/DGSMV/ch16s04s01.html for using the InsertView function.

When trying to run the same report using SmartView without the VBA code it takes the prompt values and runs just fine. However, when using the InsertView function the excel sheet remains empty.

Check SmartView log.

Used the note How to Enable Smart View Logging? (Doc ID 1354457.1) to generate the SmartView log.

You should see the below error

Report Path failed Invalid report view id
