Unable to export a grid from the AnyView IDS web browser. Error creating file.

9 August 2005

Issue Description

While attempting to use the "Export Grid" functionality in the AnyView IDS web application, the following errors are generated during grid export to Excel and PDF.  Other similar errors are generated when exporting the grid to other formats.

 

Excel :

Error Creating File

 

PDF:

Access to the path "C:\...\TempReports\WGridxxxxxxxx.pdf" is denied

 

This error indicates that the current user does not have the required permissions to the "TempReports" folder in the AnyView IDS web application physical directory.  Permissions to the "TempReports" directory need to be added.

 

Solution

In order to use the "Export Grid" functionality, the user that the web application is running under must have Read, Write and Modify permissions to the "TempReports" folder.  This folder is located in the AnyView IDS Web Application physical directory on the web server.  Typically, the path on the web server is similar to:

 

C:\Program Files\Accountable Software Inc\AnyView IDS\Web Application\

 

The user the web application is running under will depend on the form of authentication the AnyView IDS web application is using:

 

  • If the AnyView IDS web application is using Windows authentication then permissions must be added for the Windows user or for a group the user belongs to.  This user needs to have Read, Write and Modify permissions.

  • If the AnyView IDS web application is using Forms authentication (prompting for login and password), then the user that the web application is running under is typically ASPNET.  You will need to give this user access to the TempReports folder, and ensure they have Read, Write and Modify permissions.
