Dynamic datasources for Xcelsius


Coming from SAP business warehouse, I'm starting to learn about the BO tools. Last week I had an overview course on business objects IDD products, including Xcelsius. I think the course covered an older version of Xcelsius (XI r2). What is not completely clear to me, is how the data in the model can be dynamically updated. In the course examples, the data was stored in a static Excel sheet. For data changes, the model needed to be imported again. This is suitable for static visualizations, but not for dashboarding.

Do you know if it is also possible to directly connect to a dynamic data source (like a table in a datawarehouse)? What possibility's are there in the latest version? Is there a web page with help on this topic?

Kind regards,

      I am pretty new to Excelsius too, but I am looking for exact the same function.

      e.g. to upate my swf file, created in Excelsius automatically, when I update a cell in excel?

      Are there tutorials How to do that?

      Can you give me a push in the right direction?

      Many thanks!

      Regards, Edwin.
