BO client tools

Hello experts,

One of our projects in our company needs BO client tools including crystal reports and xcelsius. Our client already has the servers package installed. But we cannot access it as we do not have client tools.

Our requirements are basically to:

- View and change designs of BO reports( crystal, WebI, xcelsius)

Our questions are:

- Can we buy only the client tools? Will it suit our requirements listed above?

- Do the below stated software packages include only client tools or both?

SAPCrystal Reports 2008 INTL WIN 3-9 NUL

SAPCrystal Reports 2008 INTL WIN NUL License

BA&T SAP BusinessObjects BI Suite (user)

-What would be the best package suited to our requirements for BO Xcelsius?

Any information on the above would be very much appreciated. We have raised this query with SAP as well but there is no response so far.

Kind regards,


SAP BI consultant

      If you have purchased the server -- it is likely that you have the client licenses -- check with the person who was involved with making the purchase in your company.

      For Xcelsius -- it depends upon your needs -- here is a short summary
