Define window size for member select


We are using an planing BEX Query in our analysis workbook. The user will plan one keyfigure by company code and costcenter. For costcenter he can use the member select. The member select is an pop up window. If would like to define the size of he popup window. Currently its to small, so the user needs to scroll which is not accepted by the end user.

Btw. we use VBA in the workbook for additional formatting. Maybe there is an VBA possibility in case a native analysis features is not provided.

Thanks for your support.

I'm using analysis for Excel 1.4 SP5 Patch1

    I've not used planning nor am I a VB expert; could you look into the VB user form functionality described here - that way you can (possibly) control the size of the input form:

      Hi Tammy,

      thanks for the reply. If I use a planning query in analysis, the popup will be open with a user interaction, based on click on the "questions mark" symbol, next to the selected cell. If I go for the userform, I would need to create an extra button to open the form. Furthermore I would need to invest extra effort to rebuild the member selection option.

      Maybe there will be once an Analysis option to save the size of the window. e.g. the selected additional attributes will be saved in the workbook.

    Hi Tammy,hi experts,

    is there a way to change the default size of the popup? The width is too small. Therefore it has to be resized in most cases manually by the users.

    Thanks a lot, Tim
