  2. Open Microsoft Excel and log in to the report builder add-in.
  3. Click Create, which opens the request wizard on one of your monitors.

Additional information

This message appears when you attempt to create a report builder request when the request wizard is open. Sometimes the request wizard initially displays offscreen, especially if you move from a two-monitor setup. (The error could occur if you have a laptop that plugs into a dual-screen setup, then take your laptop home and create a report builder request).
