Scheduling of .xlf file in BOE

Hi There

A client of ours has developed over 20 financial Xcelsius dashboards that need to be refreshed every month end.

The Xcelsius dashboards are populated from data from Webi Queries, that are saved into Excel documents, and imported into Xcelsius.

The Webi Queries refresh automatically, but the manual process comes in when we have to updated the .xlf file and then generate the .swf dashboard.

Is there a way of automating this?

Can we schedule the .xlf file in InfoView and have the .swf file automatically generated?

Is there a way of automatically generating the .swf file?

Any information on this would be appreciated!

Thanks

Angela

    There is no way to schedule the XLF file to automatically publish a SWF file into Infoview. Based on the design that you described, the best approach would be to use a Live Office connection to refresh the SWF file in runtime.

    For more information on Live Office, refer to the Xcelsius user guide. There is also another thread regarding Live Office [here|https://forums.sdn.sap.com/click.jspa?searchID=16984914&messageID=5945959].

    Note: Live Office connection is only featured in Crystal Xcelsius 4.5 Workgroup Designer and Xcelsius 2008 Enterprise
