Save via Excel-Toolbar vs. Save via BEx-Toolbar (InfoCatalog)


Hi all,

in the last time I occupy oneself with BW and BEx to automate querys. I think there are two ways to save an Excel-Workbook:

1. you can save it as workbook in the InfoCatalog (saveoption in the BEx toolbar)

2. or save it classical as .xls by Excel

Now my question: there are any reasons against Variant 2? I find it’s a little easier to write only one Excel-Workbook-Macro. For Variant 1 I need 2 Workbooks, one „Autostart-Workbook“ that opens the sapbex.xla and the second Workbook from the InfoCatalog.

Is the choice only a matter of taste?

Best regards
