SAP BPC NW 10.1 BPF Excel Workbook Hyperlink Error

Hi all,

I am attempting to create a Business Process Flow (BPF) on the web client of an SAP BPC NW 10.1 (specifically it is an RDS Extended Financial Planning V2).

I can create the process template and instance as expected and even deploy and run as expected.

However, in the first step there is a work space and hyperlink to an Excel file and when I attempt to click it it will open Excel, however then give me an error (please see below):

When I attempt to open the SAME file without the BPF and simply directly in the EPM Add-In from the ribbon (Open Reports/Input Schedules) there are no issues. In fact if I attempt to hyperlink ANY report or input schedule I get the same above error, but if I open them directly in EPM there is no error.

Could anyone please advise on this?

Seems like "special characters" was the issue.

In two of my dimensions the account descriptions had a multitude of "special characters", I'm not sure specifically which one wasn't liked by the BPF front-end load of the input schedule but I removed all and then all input sheets and reports opened up okay.
