Summary

BI Publisher Excel Template preview fails

Content

I am new to the use of BI Publisher Desktop in Word and Excel to create templates for BI reporting. I have a report I'd like to move to an Excel Template but once the report is built and I select "Preview" a box pops up with the notice "Preview Failed". Full message is below:

Start Excel Preview
only open: false
mTemplate: C:\Users\dswans01\AppData\Local\Oracle\BIPublisher\TemplateBuilderforExcel\tmp\tmp\tmp.xls
mTmpTemplate: C:\Users\dswans01\AppData\Local\Oracle\BIPublisher\TemplateBuilderforExcel\tmp/tmp.xls
java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -1
 at oracle.xdo.template.excel.object.SheetObject.addComponent(SheetObject.java:179)

Howdy, Stranger!
