BO Report bursting in XI R3.1


Currently, we are on BO 6.5 and have a lot of Deski reports with macros performing different tasks. Firstly, we will convert all Deski to Webi for XI R3.1 migration work and then go for Macro - Publisher conversion.

I need to know how to setup a replacement of macros through XI Publisher for the following tasks:

1. Macro is filtering report data based on country dynamically

2. Macro is filtering report data based region-wise dynamically (within the BO report macro regions are hard-coded in variables for filter purposes)

3. Macro is saving BO report tabs in a separate pdf/html formats say, if 10 tabs are there then 10 htmls and pdfs generated (with section breaks)

4. Macro is performing a filter on year-Month basis say, 2011-06 2011-05 etc.

How shall I proceed in such scenarios and what is the best approach. Any in-depth knowledge would be great help to me.
