Bursting reports Analysis for Office

Hello,

In BO Analysis for Excel, is there a function to burst reports? By bursting, I mean to distribute the report contents to various recipients, who can then each view a subset of the data (e.g. different spreadsheets).

My search returned standard functions in BusinessObjects, but I couldn't see anything specifically for AfO.

Your help would be appreciated.

Using analysis for office you cannot distrbute your reports directly to the users.

For doing so you have to save it on the BO platform from there you can distribute with the users.

Hello Karan

Do you mean the "Scheduling" function on the BO platform, or a different one?

Thanks

Hi Mattias - you can schedule your workbooks - see https://blogs.sap.com/2015/02/25/checklist-for-scheduling-of-analysis-for-office-workbooks/

Analysis Office 2.6, planned in a few weeks, has more scheduling features - see https://blogs.sap.com/2017/11/20/asug-webcast-whats-new-in-analysis-office-2.6-recap/

Hi Tommy,

We can see that from AFO 2.6 we can use it in publication...Do we have any real time examples on how this can be done with AFO worbooks...I am not sure if I use HANA views as source for my workbook... how to setup profiling for bursting my workbook...

Thanks in advance...

Hi - you probably should create a new thread; bursting is something that third party add-ons do such as APOS. Several scheduling improvements have occurred in 2.6/2.7 versions but you need the BI platform...

The new publication feature looks interesting.

In our tests, we defined "Enterprise Recipients", who then received the report to their respective e-mail adresses.

We understand that for AO, the user-specific precalculation works with Analysis Authorizations (and not with explicit profile values, as e.g. for WebI and Crystal Reports). Is that correct, or is there a way to work with profile values for AO, too?

Thank You.
