Why can't I run reports in Excel after changing my password in Atlas?

Your Data Warehouse logon ID/Password is tied to your Atlas logon ID/Password. If, when you run a report in Excel, you are prompted for an ID/Password, use your new password immediately after changing it in Atlas.

If you are not prompted for a password when you run a report in Excel then your password is being stored and it will need to be updated if you change your password in Atlas.

Directions on how to update your password in the Excel add-in are available by following the link below:

Why do I get an error message when I try to access the Data Warehouse Portal from outside of Valencia?

The Data Warehouse is only available while connected to the Valencia network. When on campus, this can be accomplished by either plugging directly into the network (like the PC in your office or a laptop that is plugged into a network outlet via a network cable) or connecting to the Valencia Wireless Network (WiFi). Off campus if you establish a VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection you will be able to access the Data Warehouse portal. After establishing the VPN connection simply open a browser and connect to the Data Warehouse portal page.
