How to find BW patch version within SAP GUI

How can I find the version of various components within the SAP GUI on my PC?

Specifically I am interested in the BW patch version (I am not sure if it is 800 or 801).

Please note - I am not looking to find the general frontend patch version that is found in the GUI 'About SAP Logon' screen.

Thanks.

    Start the Business Explorer Analyzer and choose the following

    on the BW standard toolbar: Help -> Info. In the displayed

    dialog box, version andpatch are indicated at the bottom, e.g.

    Version 2.0A Patch 2 2010.2.219

      Thanks for this.

      I have also found that this shows the version:

      C:\Program Files\Common Files\SAP Shared\BW\SAPBExCheck.xla

    You can see the component versions/patch levels in System > Status menu, and clicking the Component Information (magnifying glass) button.

      Stumbled on this post while looking for something else, but thought I'd add to it even thought it's been a year since it first was posted.

      If you want to see the BW Addon Patch level for all the client PCs, not just yours, go to table RSFEC. Filter records on FILENAME = sapbex.xla.

      RSFEC also continas information on the SAP GUI, PC Operating system, Excel, memory, PC Processor, disk, etc.
