Hi All,

I have a peculiar requirement, where a connection need to be established from SAP system to a windows desktop for running a specific activity related to SAP EPM - data manager packages.

Has anyone tried this before, if so can you please let me know the possible options of creating a connection .

Thanks,

Sanketh.

"connection need to be established from SAP system to a windows desktop for running a specific activity related to SAP EPM - data manager packages." - sorry, but not clear!

What do you want to achieve?

In order to launch DM package you have to launch Excel with EPM.

For sure you can design special Excel file with VBA that will perform the following actions on open:

1. Connect to required model

2. Launch the required DM package filling answer prompt.

3. Close Excel

Thanks Vadim for the reply.

While running a few data manager packages , end users system is being hung and they are not able to use the system.

Our BPC consultant has asked , if we can trigger this data manager package to run in remote desktop as soon as user has triggered (by capturing the inputs from user screen ) once the execution is completed, output will be saved to the SAP and will show the output to user.

remote desktop has the EPM-excel addin installed, which is already connected to SAP.

This is a brief about the issue, please let me know if there is any way to connect the data manager package to run in remote desktop.

Thanks,

Sanketh.

"Our BPC consultant has asked , if we can trigger..." - absolutely strange proposal! Please find a better consultant :)

DM package is running in background on the BPC server. When the user launch DM - user PC is not affected!

If during package run the BPC server has very high loads - then write better code for DM, purchase a better server, switch to HANA etc...
