Unable to Create RULE-FILE-BINARY Instance
As part of our attempt to import data from excel, we're trying to call the activity MSOParseExcelFile. As one of this activity's parameters, we need to create a Binary File and upload the template of the excel file we want to import. We've successfully created the Binary file but when we try to upload the template to it we keep getting the following error: No File Chosen. Please select a file of type .xlsx and try again.
The below screenshot is from after selecting the file to upload:
The below screenshot is from after hitting the Upload File button.
Does anyone know why this is happening and how to workaround it?
It's working for me (Pega 7.1.7). I got the error you mentioned when I have tried to upload xls file instead of xlsx.
Screenshot you attached does show file as of type xlsx. Strange!
May be one thing you can try is to download file from OOTB binary file rules (say excel.PAUseCases.xlsx rule) and try to upload that file in the new binary file rule. This will validate if issue is with file or not.
I have tried downloading PAYUseCases and uploading it but the error was the same. I have also tried on both internet explorer and google chrome with no difference in the results obtained. So I guess the issue is not related to the file.
