Workbook Compression?


Hi BW Gurus; re: BI 7.0

I have a user with a BI Workbook that is 6MB in size it has 7 sheets with approx 10 query views and 30 graphs.

He has just emailed it to me and it is 6.5MB in size (unzipped).

I know there is an option to compress the workbooks in "workbook settings" but would be interested to know what approximate reduction we would expect to have if we were to implement this solution as it requires the installation of Microsoft J# as a prerequisite for compression.

Also further to this is there any other solutions that others are using to reduce the size of workbooks.

The user has zipped already to 0.5MB but if the workbook setting is of interest if it makes the distribution easier.

Thanks in advance.
