The following error occurs when users do not save changes (after updating a field such as 'As of Date') to the Report Request page upon running the nVision report :

'Excel interface exception [E:\pt85314b-retail\peopletools\src\psnxl\gridapp.cpp:2172] Microsoft Excel cannot access the file '\.xlsm'. There are several possible reasons:

• The file name or path does not exist.
• The file is being used by another program.
• The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a currently open workbook.' Error for 'Microsoft Excel: '. (28,160)

If the user saves the page before running the report, the nVision report runs successfully.
