THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Enterprise, version 6 and later

SYMPTOM

Advanced Workflow Engine (AWE) Excel Tasks fail to save when run via EFT Event Rules, but work when tested in Task Builder.

RESOLUTION

Before running the Task in an Event Rule, create the following folder:

  • 64-bit:
  • C:\Windows\Syswow64\config\systemprofile\Desktop

  • 32-bit

    C:\Windows\config\systemprofile\Desktop

MORE INFORMATION

Excel objects run in the context of the user executing them. If EFT is running as a Local System, then the Excel object is executed using the Local System profile.
