invalid access token

Post by Martin_Mueller » Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:08 pm

i managed in VBA Excel to connect to OPS and getting an Access Token.
Unfortunately when i use the example from EPO to request data i get the response "invalid access token"
I use the header authorization and the Get method like described in the example of the documentation.

May someone help?

Thank you very much

As i tried various times to post my code and the EPO did not allow me, because of the SPAM Filter:
Your post looks too spamy for a new user, please remove off-site URLs.
Even when i did not have any URL.

Yes, sorry about that. Send your code to our email adress and I will add it to your post and maybe someone will have a solution for you. Also look at older postings, access token issues were discussed more then once.

I am not sure about searches you are trying to do but note that GET methode only works in Publish Service with biblio constituent.
