"Automation Error Unspecified Error" ... err Error
By Tim Dexter on Sep 10, 2012
One the best error messages I have seen in a long time and I've seen some doozies!
There have been a fare few internal emails flying over the past week about issues with the template builder for MSWord not working. The issue has been found, so if you are hitting some behaviour similar to this:
I have installed BI Publisher Desktop 220.127.116.11 for 32 bit. I have to load the data from XML to RTF Template. As per instruction when I click on tab Sample XML nothing happen.
When I click on any other tab from BI Publisher menu, I am getting one error in pop-up menu “Automation Error Unspecified Error.
I am unable to open any of the tab of BI Publisher menu including help.
Have no fear, it's for once, not a BIP issue but a Microsoft one! Check here for what you need to do to resolve the error.
