"The Access Web Datasheet is attempting to retrieve data froma different domain. You will be redirected to an error page. Contact your syatem administratior to resolve this error".

are you using http or https. If using http only have you configured your server for https access too?


The issue may be something to do with Alternate Access Mappings (AAM), please try to check your AAM configuration.

Hi Ronney,
It looks like it also works for https, but when I try the same cut and paste operation, I get the same failed result.

Hi Vikas413,
I will check the AAM, thanks!
Just wanted to confirm that your site is set up for both http and https.

Your AAM settings should be like the following (assuming that your site is companyweb and your https is set up on port 444)

now the AAM settings are like this:

Internal URL                                                   Zone              Public URL for zone
http://companyweb.domain.local                Default           http://companyweb.domain.local
http://companyweb                                     Intranet          http://companyweb
https://companyweb.domain.local:444       Internet          https://servername.domain.local:444
https://servername.domain.local:444          Internet          https://servername.domain.local:444

This should work for you.

Let me know.
