Hello I've inherited a semi-working sharepoint 2007 environment and I got most of it working except the excel services. When I go to the SSP admin page it all works except the excel area and if an excel is integrated into a sharepoint site when it kicks off it throws a generic error saying contact your administrator.
When I go to the event log though I see event ID 5244
Excel Services: Unexpected exception while trying to access Shared Services Database;. Error = ExcelServerSharedWebApplication.Local: Could not get the shared web application associated with this context. This indicates that the Excel Server service is not properly registered or provisioned..
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
the service account does have full access to the DB.
