Error Occurs When Exporting Financial Reporting (FR) Reports From Workspace In Query-Ready Mode: "Argument URL in the request is an empty string or NULL"

Oracle Planning and Budgeting Cloud Service - Version 15.10.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You've imported some FR reports via LCM into a PBCS environment.  You're able to view them in HTML Preview in Workspace but when you select "Export In Query-Ready Mode", Excel launches but then throws the error: "Argument URL in the request is an empty string or NULL".  When that error is cleared, another error appears: "Web launch operation has been cancelled".  A blank spreadsheet results.

Fully-formatted exports from Workspace complete successfully.  If they launch Excel first and import the report via the Smart View panel, the report imports correctly.


EPM content, exported from an on-premises environment, was recently imported into the PBCS environment.
