Can we change the Data source in AO ?

Hi Folks,

Environment: SAP HANA on AO

I have the following scenario , Am creating a report on one Calculation View: CV and have done some analysis where I have pulled in some dimensions and kept some background filters.

Now I have to generate the same report on another Calculation View: CV2 ( Similar to structure of CV ) and compare the reports. Is there any way to edit copy the previous report and change the data source? Can you guide me on that?

Regards,

Krishna Tangudu

    Hi,

    You can exchange the calc view by clicking on the button next to the data source name in the tab "components", but when you do this, the new data source will overwrite the settings and filters from the previous data source. So no, there is not a supported way of exchanging the datasource and keeping the filters of the previous data source.

    Best regards,

    Victor

    Hi,

    Have you tried working with formulas : insert your new datasource for CV2 and convert the two datasources to formulas.

    Then you just have to set the SAPGetData to look the same (except the part concerning the key figure and the Datasource that will be different)

    hope this helps
