If a user creates a Discoverer 10g or 11g workbook and saves it to the database as "My Workbook," the user is able to run the EULAPI on the unix server and export the workbook to an EEX file using a command like:

eulapi -eul eul -export workbook.eex -log export.log -connect user/password@DB_connect -workbook
"My Workbook"

If the EUL owner, or Discoverer Administrator, tries to run the EULAPI and export the same workbook, the export fails with a message:

"Failed to find workbook: My Workbook"

The EUL owner/administrator ran the API with the following syntax:

eulapi -eul eul -export workbook.eex -log export.log -connect EUL_owner/password@DB_Connect  -workbook "My Workbook"
