E-NV: Cross Platform Mode Looks for the First Specified LayoutDir Value Only (Doc ID 2080123.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 21, 2015

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.54 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

nVision run in Cross Platform Mode (UseExcelAutomation=2) takes only the first specified path in LayoutDir parameter in the process scheduler configuration, it ignores the rest.

With the below configuration 'File not Found' error is received, since the layout did not exist in %PS_CUST_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT. The layout existed in %PS_APP_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT

(The same configuration works fine with UseExcelAutomation=1)

LayoutDir=%PS_CUST_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT;%PS_APP_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT;%PS_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT.

Changes

Changed the above setting to

LayoutDir=%PS_APP_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT;%PS_CUST_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT;%PS_HOME%\NVISION\LAYOUT

Now the report ran to success.
