Using Web Services (Non-QaaWS Type)


I also posted this on the BoB forum.

I'm trying to have Xcelsius consume a web service that is built using Visual Studio 2008. But whenever I try to add the web service connection to the data manager it fails returning an error "Unable to load URL" .. --However, I am able to consume the web service in other applications successfully (i.e., excel).

After researching the SAP/BO case forums, it seems the issue is due the Web Service not being of a "Single Schema" and the recommended resolution is to use BO's Query as a web service.

The problem I have is we don't own BO XI to use Qaaws, the only tools I have are Xcelsius and Visual Studio. Short of purchasing the BI XI, can Xcelsius talk directly with Visual Studio Web Services ?

Any help is appreciated..

Reproducing the Issue

Launch Crystal Xcelsius 4.5 or 2008

Click Data tab

Click Web Service connection

Enter the web service URL created in WSDL URL

Click Import to see the following error: "Unable to Load URL"

Environment :

Web Service URL created from SQL 2005, PHP Scripts or SOAP


Product Limitation

Xcelsisus support only single schema web service.

Web service created from PHP script, SQL 2005 or SOAP are based on multiple schemas.


Create web service using Flynet

Create web service using Query as web service

The above create single schema web services which are supported in Xcelsius
