Problems with starting BW 7.0 BEx functions

Dear all:

We currently install NetWeaver 2004s on our server. Now we are trying to work with BW7.0 BEx functions. We already have SAP GUI 6.40 patch level 20 and old business explorer for BW 3.5. How can we access new BW 7.0 function , such as Report Designer, query designer , web application designer, etc by invoking Business Explorer. Is there any component we should download and install. Or should we update our GUI?

Now we have facing problems with even start BW 7.0 BEx functions. Any input will be great.

Thank you very much

S.F

    Hi!

    you nneed to install the new GUI. After installing you can see the new Analzer asusally in programs ->Bex menu and the old analyzer will be displayed as a seperately grouped under 3.x

    with regards

    hi Szu Fen,

    there is DVD sapgui come with nw2004s installation disk,

    you may have to remove first old sapgui, and then install from that disk, you will then get 'business explorer' in program menu with report designer, WAD etc, with one 'business explorer (SAP BW 3.x)'.

    your nw2004s may need in >= SP7 and sapgui certain revision.

    take a look oss note 893348.

    hope this helps.

      Yes, you have to upgrade your server to 2004s to use the new tools (Report Designer and Visual Composer). Both the BI Addon and the server upgrade are required.
