Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA) infrastructure, you cannot get Excel Upload screens to open.  In certain environments, when you click on the Data Entry Forms and Queries > Excel Upload link, nothing happens.  The DEFQ-Excel Upload screen does not open.  In other cases, the screen does open but when you try to create an Excel-Entity Mapping, nothing happens after you enter a Mapping name and description, select an Excel file, and click on the Arrow button.  In both cases, you get the following error in the WebLogic console or nohup.out:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Not a directory: /Excelupload/Templates

The error prevents you from creating the Excel-Entity Mapping and uploading data using an Excel spreadsheet.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Unified Metadata Manager
  2. Go to Data Entry Forms and Queries > Excel Upload
  3. Go to Excel-Entity Mappings
  4. Click the "Add" button
  5. Enter a Mapping Name, Description, and Excel file
  6. Click on the Arrow button

Nothing happens.

Review the Weblogic output either in the server console or the nohup.out file.  The error above is listed.
