BPC Custom Menu Excel 2007


I created a custom menu in BPC. In this menu I inserted several reports in the Highlight area. When I open this custom menu afterwards, the background of my report is black.

Has anyone already encountered this problem?

Thanks in advance

    You can greatly improve your chance of receiving a helpful answer to your question if you state the version (MS or NW) and the release (5.1, 7.0, 7.5) of BPC which you are using.

    I've encountered the same issue today using BPC 7.5MS and Excel 2007.

    It seems like BPC generates an incorrect black solid fill color for the PIC_HIGHLIGHT named object (which contains the picture of the Custom Menu Highlight).

    Therefore, when the cells of the highlight worksheet use the Excel background default ("no fill"), the highlight is rendered as a black rectangle in the custom menu.

    I've found a workaround which consists in using a colored background for the cells of the highlight worksheet. You can, for instance, replace the "No Fill" by a white background. After a refresh of the dynamics templates, the highlight becomes correctly displayed in the custom menu.

    Hope this helps,
