Updated: July 15, 2008

Applies To: Office SharePoint Server 2007

Updated: 2008-07-15

Excel Services is a new server technology included in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. This shared service enables you to load, calculate, and display Office Excel workbooks on Office SharePoint Server 2007. Excel Services generates errors and error messages in the SOAP exception, based on errors that occur in Excel Services. The following table shows the errors that are accessible when calls to the Excel Services methods produce a SOAP exception. It also includes the error codes for Excel Services alerts, associated messages, and the explanation.
