Display chart and tables from another reporting tool in WAD


Hi guys,

Just wanted to hear your feedback regarding the following:

We run BW 3.1 without EP 5. We would like to leverage WAD to prepare a small web application to display graphs and tables.

After a long research, i realized that WAD (at least in v 3.1) doesn't provide the required functionality mainly as far as charts is concerned.

Therefore we decided to leverage another reporting tool to create those charts with (and hopefully be able to publish them in the web template in addition to the chart and graphs made using WAD).

My questions:

1. Can anyone recommend a tool with advanced charting capabilites that can leverage BW data (by using OLE DB for OLAP), produce a nice chart and publish its output in a web format?

2. Did someone manage to show the contents of another web page in a web template in version 3.1? This should be possible in 2004S with the container web item...

Many thanks,
