As a general note :

I do think programmers assume a level of knowledge, which is a reach.

Most non-techies find it v hard to follow basic text. Pictures are a big help.

We stupid, and we know it.

Nobody (?) is stupid, we all just know different stuff.
I get it Mega, and from someone on the other side of the fence I feel the same when you talk about sport which I know f'all about compared to you, and I don't especially have the desire to spend months and years studying it. We're Jack Spratt and his wife.

To be absolutely fair, the word doc does have a lot of pics.

I will maybe re-try later .. but, its time consuming, and my heart isnt really in it.

But, maybe people can get an insight etc, into whats required and what u should get out.

hello all,

having issues my side too... am able to login, and see the data i've requested, but when i try to select the remote data via the filter button i get an error in the bottom left hand corner:

[readcollections error: Object required] <image attached>

seems there is some connection error and am unable to link into the options - market type / country / file type are all blank dropdowns so unable to select anything to download.

is anyone else getting this error or any ideas on how to fix ?

seems to be working via the BF front end so not sure this is a BF issue.

Can you download the data and point the sheet to the data?

Do you have 7zip installed? It may be trying to access it. Hard to say without seeing the code.

yes i did. i ran a fix on excel and have managed to get the download function working now. my next problem is that it wont take the downloaded files & merge them into a report.

when i try to run all different types of reports, it generates a new tab (with headings), but i get an error msg:

File not found in local database


But all the files have downloaded there. Have set the files to share so shouldnt be a permission issue, but running out of other ideas.

can anyone help ?

thanks
