Regarding the terminology of Reporting Bex and web

hi gurus,

i am trying to learn Web reporting...

i am a bit confused about the words used in the materials..and documents..

I request somebody to explain me the web reporting terminalogy by comparing with Bex analyzer...excel way.

i am in assumption that we create a query in Bex and save that in a workbook and then open the workbook and then publish it into web or IB.

but when i am going through the materials i am getting different terms.

like

Bex Web analyzer ---is this equal to Bex analyzer, so if we use this no need of publishing am i right.

Bex Web browser........

Bex Query designer & web query designer---??

Bex web application

BEx web application wizard

Bex web items--- plz explain by comparing with bex analyzer.

Bex web report---is this the same bex query when converted to bex web we call it as web report.

Bex web template---and workbook template.

can somebody plz explain me the link between them and also the different methodologies to create bex web queries...like

do we have to first create bex analyzer excel query and then start or else do we have to start differently...

thanks and regards

Neel

    hi Neel,

    '... i am in assumption that we create a query in Bex and save that in a workbook and then open the workbook and then publish it into web or IB '

    -> No, we create query in bex and use it in web template (using WAD-web application designer), with 'web item' 'table' or 'graph', and point the 'data provider' to that query.

    assume you are going to work with web reporting, take a look following

    hope this helps.

      Hi A.H.P

      thanks for the time...

      actually i was mixing up the Bex analyzer with the web.

      so now i understood that

      Web application designer is something like Bex analyzer.

      but we have queries created for web.

      We use the option of publishing queries into web from BEx analyzer so as to web enable them.

      otherwise we create web templates from WAD and use Bex queries as data providers for web reporting..

      thanks and regards

    Hi Neel,

    Bex Web analyzer ---is this equal to Bex analyzer, so if we use this no need of publishing am i right.

    <b>BEx analyzer is in the form excel and Web analyzer is on Web</b>

    Bex Web browser........

    <b>In Web Browser, we can publish or see how the query output looks on web. We can publish query on web but the output only can be viewed on web</b>

    Bex Query designer & web query designer---??

    <b>We design queries in BEx query designer. Both are one I beleive</b>

    Bex web application

    <b>This is BEx WAD</b>

    BEx web application wizard

    <b>This wizard is available in BEx WAD itself. Here we can design or format the basic queries as how they should look on web.</b>

    Hope this helps you....
