7.x Workbook BroadCasting questions

14 Views

Hello Gurus,

We are currently upgrading from BW 3.5 to 7.01 and migrating several Reporting Agent settings to the BroadCaster 7. We need your assistance on a particular requirement for which we cannot find a clear answer online (either on SDN, OSS or SAP related blogs) :

We would like to know if it is possible to BroadCast a 7.x Workbook that contains about a dozen queries (1 per worksheet) by converting each sheet as an individual PDF file. As a workaround, we could accept to split the original workbook into several workbooks (one for each query) but we must be able to export them individually as a pdf.

Additionally, we would like to be able to export the generated pdf files to either a windows server (unless we can send these these pdf via email and automate their extraction / transfer to windows server.

We are aware that most of the precalculation steps for a workbook require to set up a dedicated precalculation server, and we already have looked at a bunch of white papers (including "Checking Precalculation Server Issues for BEx Analyzer Workbooks in BW 7.X"), SDN blogs and OSS notes (among them: 1236773 - BI7.X Precalculation - General Information & Limitations; 1425805 - Hardware&Software requirement for BI7.x frontend....) and threads here (including the popular "Troubleshoot Information Broadcasting") but cannot find a clear and definitive answer.

Therefore, we would like to ensure that our requirements are technically feasible before setting up a precalculation server.

Thanks in advance,

S├ębastien FRANCAL
