    I am getting this error in Management reporter:
    The report definition you have selected is linked to an Excel File that could not be found. The folder does not exist.

    I tried changing the path to UNC but that did not work.

    Hi Mackenzie,
    Please make sure the Management Reporter (MR) SERVICE ACCOUNT USER has read access to the folder and Excel file.  To confirm the MR service account user, go to Tools | Connection in the MR Designer program where you can confirm the server.  Then go to that server under SERVICES for the two Microsoft Management Reporter services to confirm the user defined during the MR install.  That user will need read access to the Excel file/folder.
