Hi Folks,

I would like to know how scheduling of Advance Analysis for Office works. I could not see instance of the Analysis I created.

Can somebody tell me how does end user access Advance Analysis? Do they require Excel+AA installed all the item?

Insights on scheduling would be of great help.

    Hi Tejas,

    You need the BussinessObjects Platform to schedule workbooks.

    Take a look at the following.

    • Hi Tejas,

      In order to complement Michael's reply, in case of the BIP installation is on you can check the installation of AO BIP ADD-ON by the follow steps:

      #1 - Go to BOE/CMC (Central Management Console);
      #2 - Go to Servers/Core Services/[SIA_NAME].AdaptiveJobServer;
      #3 - Open "Properties" and check the scheduling services;
      #4 - Verify that there is an entry "Analysis Office Scheduling Service".

      If it exists, please need to confirm that the parameter "Precalculation Server Path" is set. The parameter must be filled with the path to the precalculation executable, for example (please adapt to your installation):

      >> "C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Analysis Precalculation\BiPrecalculation.exe"

      A detail on the schedule is that it is mandatory that .NET 3.x is installed. It is not sufficient to have .NET 2 and .NET 4 installed.

      For precalculation you have some restrictions and you can check on chapter 10.1 (page 158) of the Analysis User Guide.
