Excel Project Documentation Template

I am relatively new to SolMan. That being said, here is my situation:

In Tx SOLAR_PROJECT_ADMIN, I chose "Goto --> Project Template --> Implementation Projects".

In the "Documentation Types" tab, I added a new document type "Z001 - Excel Template" with a file extension of "XLS". This document type is NOT global, does allow several documents, has the file extension set to XLS, is not flagged as blueprint relevant, and has no status schema.

I thne click the "Document template" button and import my own Excel file.

The file looks fine so I mark it released.

I allow the document type in the project document type directory.

I then go back to my project, go to the project standards, go to the document types and allow my new template Z001 in the project.

I now go to SOLAR01 or SOLAR02 and try to create the document. Instead of opening my Excel template, it opens a blank Excel document.

Any ideas?

This is used to be an error on SP-12 and below. I am not able to recall the relevant note for fixing the error but please try out the following.

Run Transaction SE 38.

Enter u2018SOLAR_DOCTYPE_TEMPLATE_CLEANUPu2019 in the field u2018 Programu2019

Press F8 or the u2018Executeu2019 icon

In the next screen uncheck u2018Test Runu2019 checkbox

Press F8 or the u2018Executeu2019 icon

In the next screen - You should get Program SOLAR_DOCTYPE_TEMPLATE_CLEANUP with u2018Finishedu2019 status.

Re-login and try again for your template to appear.

Hope this helps.
