List of reports using Excel as a data source

Hi Everybody,

I've been reading Manikandan Elumalai's great articles about SAP BI Query Builder on SCN and I started to think about the possibility to get the list of reports based on Excel-as-a-data-source from BI 4.0 enviroment using Query Builder?

Has anyone figured out if that is possible using this tool or might there be any other ways to do that (SDK, Audit DB...?)

    Oskar, Please clarify whether you need reports that are created on top of Excel datasource or Universe that is created based on Excel source and the reports linked to the universe? Regards Mani

      Hi Manikandan, thanks for your quick reply.

      I'm interested in reports that are created on top of Excel datasource.

      Example use case:

      There might be a need to migrate .xls files that are used as report data sources from one location to another and I'm interested if it might be possible to use query builder to acquire this list from BO.
