COMException (0x800AC472) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear,

    In the MDS GUI, when downloading the data to excel, we are experiencing an error: "Exception from HRESULT: 0x800AC472".

    Everything was working fine, and for other users (same security) it still does.
    Also via the excel ribbon > masterdata > connecting to the entity/data still workt.

    When checking the windows updates, no updates has been done.

    Also installing SQL2016 MDS SP2 did not work.

    Here is the detail of the error, hopefully someone has an idea.

    Excel Client Side Error Log:

  • Did you ever get a response or resolution to this?  I have some users experiencing this when they open an Entity from the Excel Add-In Explorer.  Would love to hear how you resolved!
