7.5 - Breakdown custom menu and availability of help links


we are currently testing 7.5, using it with Office 2010. Is this perhaps the reason that the custom menus breakdown, everytime we want to follow a link to different pages? Or do the custom menus not get full support anymore?

Also the help function is not available anymore in the Action pane (under 'See also'), which is a bit impractical, as it was very helpful for quick access. Is this intended, or did we miss something during installation?

Thanks for any help.

    What is the version of SAP BPC 7.5 which you are using?

    I'm asking because Office 2010 is supported just starting with Sp4 and just 32 bits version.

    It was a change regarding the help.

    You can find it into Action pane - it is on the top an icon with question mark(?).

    But it is more and less the entire help not specific for that action pane.

    I agree with you it was more practical and much easier to find the help into previous release than 7.5

      Hi Sorin,

      of course we have installed it on a 64bit OS, with 7.5 SP04, and a 2008 R2 server. If I am right, I thought I had read a previous message of yours regarding this incompability with some other features as well.

      Best regards

    Hi Melanie,

    I can confirm that there is a bug regarding menus and Office 2010.

    In our case a jump between different menus leads to a complete crash of Excel.

    Unfortunately my OSS regarding this issue was closed with the Message "its a Microsoft problem, not a SAP Problem".

    So I don't think that the issue will be resolved soon.

    (We used BPC7.5 SP4 on a 32bit Client, problem remains with SP5)
