Question

Dear,

When trying to connect to MDS via the Excel Add-in, I get the following error:

Even if the webservice seems to be running fine:

The URL specified in the error message is pretty strange... (adding service.svc/bhb)

Would you have any idea on how to solve this ?

That's because MDS has two _separate_ web service endpoints.  They use the same WSDL contract, but different WCF bindings.  The endpoint at service.svc uses the WsHttpBinding, and the endpoint at service.svc/bhb uses the BasicHttpBinding.  The Excel Add-In uses the BasicHttpBinding endpoint at .../service.svc/bhb.
