Post subject: Scheduling to Sharepoint

I have a SharePoint path as -

https://xxx.yyy.zzz.com/sites/.../...

that I need to convert to a UNC path in the scheduler for a Webi report. If I use the above format it gives a source file error. I have tried to convert it using forward slashes only and it runs successfully, but it will run whatever is put in the path.

I need to know the path is correct before I start investigating other possibilities for failure. Is there a standard format for converting http paths to UNC?
Thanks

I don't understand.

for example I believe the 'correct' path is /xxx/yyy/zzz/Sites/... but I could put any other character in such as /xxx12/yyy34/zzz/Sites/... and it will still say it's successful when the path is obviously made up.

The scheduler doesn't seem to like "." in the path hence why I want to convert the http:// format into a UNC path with '/' only.

When doing a similar thing I found it would actually create folders on the fly to match what you specified....if there was a temp folder but you specified /temp/this/that.....this and that would appear as new folders!
