Error: Component failed to run due to a Object Package scheduling failure

BO XI R2 SP 5 FP 5.1 on Windows

I am trying to schedule a group of reports (crystal reports) via a package where the output destination is to an email. At the event of execution of the scheduled time for the package; the package fails with the error: Component failed to run due to a Object Package scheduling failure. (Note: When scheduled individually it is successful and it was copied to the package from its original location, so there is no mistake in parameters or ODBC connections)

When we go to the history and within the instance, we see that some of the reports have the status as success and some are failed with the same error message. Even though some of the reports are made to fail at the event of 'NO DATA'; what I do not understand is that how come some of the other reports (which contains data and which works when trying to run manually or scheduled individually) are failing.

I would understand something is wrong when the entire package fails which is not the case here as say of 50 reports, 5 are successful and the rest fails with the same error.

This seems possible with some versions (e.g. BOXI R3.1) but not others.  See this --


However, for R2, it doesn't seem possible.  Here is what Business Objects says --

"Unfortunately there is no such functionality in our products, every report is sent individually by email.
There are 3rd party companies that provide tools for our products like Apos http://www.apos.on.ca/"

Unfortunately, Apos only offers multiple scheduling but not multiple report send out in one email.

So it seems not possible.  Only one report per email.  Very short sighted, I will agree.

Package was sucessfull when unchecked the option called 'Scheduled package fails upon individual component failure' in the properties tab of the package
