When I try to create a report with a grouped field from a table in ArcMAP, I receive the following error:
"System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component."
The table was generated in MS Excel and added to the data frame. When I open (i.e. link to) the original table in MS Access, I can create the desired report there without any problems. I can also create a report without any grouping in ArcMAP. I am using ArcGIS for Desktop (ArcMAP 10.3.1.4959) and have Microsoft.NET framework 4.6.1 installed.
What I tried so far:
- I followed the advice in the thread https://community.esri.com/thread/89781 to store relative pathnames to data sources in the Map Document Properties dialog
- I found some hints online pointing to firewall settings. I completely disabled my firewall
- I also found a hint to the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) service in a Microsoft developer forum. The service was not running on my machine. I started it manually
None of these steps changed anything, the problem persists. Does anybody have a solution for this...?
Thank you in advance!
