It is not possible to login to BusinessObjects using Internet Explorer when the report is embedded into another web page using IFRAME and OpenDocument link.

You get the login screen but nothing happens when you try to login (you are staying on the same page). The OpenDocument link works when it is opened in the browser directly.
1. Create folder w3c in
2. Create file p3p.xml in the folder with the following code:
<META> <POLICY-REFERENCES> <POLICY-REF about="/w3c/policy.xml"> <INCLUDE>/</INCLUDE> <COOKIE-INCLUDE/> </POLICY-REF> </POLICY-REFERENCES> </META>
hello , we have same issue. we tried your solution. but it didnt work. we are developing with .NET on IIS and BO is on Tomcat server with different server. Everything is fine with mozilla but not with IE. We created w3c context under the webapps and created this xml but we didnt find policy.xml in the server, as you gave as a POLICY-REF.Should we create a second xml or what should we do ?
Since IIS is used, you should do this in the folder:
[Business Objects]\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\Web Content\
Try to open the file in the browser, to check that it is in the right place and accessible:
Note the solution will not work if IP is used in the opendocument link
