Hyperlink to a report in BPC 7.5 Webfolders (Microsoft Platform)


I need help with the following issue if possible. I am trying to hyperlink to a report in webfolders so that it opens when a user clicks the link.

I do not want to use custom menus. I have tried to hyperlink in excel by using the formula....

=HYPERLINK("HTTP://SAPBPCTEST/Old_World_Industries/FINANCE/eEXCEL/Reports/Income Statements/Income Statement.xlt","Income Statements")

I used the directory that comes up when I go to eTools/Open Dynamic Templates, but when I click on the hyperlink that is created I receive the following error message...

"Unable to open http://sapbpctest/Old_World_Industries/FINANCE/eEXCEL/Reports/Income Statements/Income Statement.xlt. The Internet site reports that the item you requested could not be found. (HTTP/1.0 404).

Is it possible to hyperlink to a document in BPC webfolders and have it open when the user clicks the hyperlink (without using custom menus)?

If so, can you please help me figure it out.

Thank you so much! Have a Great Day!

    • Hi Will,

      no there isn't a special syntax, just remember that it's default folder is eexcel, so you must start describing the rest of the path without the initial "\" as described in the help.

      In your ex.

      =EVMNU("OPENWEBFILE";"Income statement";"Reports/Income Statements/Income Statement.xlt")

      if you want to open just the folder, leaving to choose the template, then you must write

      =EVMNU("OPENWEBFOLDER";"Income statements";"/Reports/Income Statements") (please note the initial slash for the folder path.

      Kind regards
