Urgent: Xcelsius and BO 6.5 connectivity options

Hi all,

I have a requirement in which the users want a Xcelsius 2008 dashboard, but they want the dashboard to connect to BO 6.5.

Here is the story, so we have a report in DeskI and that report contains all the data for the dashboard.

The users want an excel file of the report to be FTPed to a specific location thru BO6.5 by which a dashboard can be developed. but my manager doesnt want that he wants Xcelsius to fetch data directly from either the Universe or report in BO 6.5...

So now what are my options on this take, how can an Xcelsius dashboard support connections with BO 6.5 ??? Any hints, suggestionssss

      Well let me put my question the other way around,

      Does BO 6.5 offer QaaWS or LiveOffice?

      Or what other connectivity would anyone reading this suggest for me to bring Data into Xcelsius?

      One approach that I'm thinking of is to convert the DESKI report into a Excel Spreadsheet and feed that to Xcelsius, but life is not that easy, my manager wants an automated approach...

      Therefore Im querying you ppl.
