BPC 7.0 SP07 & BPC Powerpoint

Hi all,

I have tried to use BPC Powerpoint with BPC 7.0 SP07. It seems that it doesn't work fine:

1- sometimes when I insert an Excel object (ie a BPC Excel EVDRE report) into a slide I just have a blank sheet.

2- sometimes the EVDRE report is visible but all group lines and columns are visible too. I have to edit the report from BPC Powerpoint to hide all unecessary rows and columns. In this case it seems that the report doesn't depend on the Current view of BPC Powerpoint. For example, my report displays the quarters which depends on the Time current view. If I change the current view in BPC Powerpoint and I click on "Retrieved all data" nothing occurs. When I click on "Expand all", I have an error message: "You should select the Excel object".

Have you already seen these problems?

thanksfor your help,

Romuald

HI,

I made other tests and it seems that "Expand all" command applies only to EVEXP() functions. It doesn't work with EVDRE.

Moreover, the "Retrieve all" menu refresh all report in the selected slide but it doesn't refresh other slides.

Any idea to use BPC Powerpoint correclty?

Hi,

I have exactly the same problem, both with the Powerpoint and also the Word interface.

Hi

Romuald Colletaz

We are thinking about applying SP07

Please provide more insight on why did SAP release SP07 so early after SP06

is there any particular issue that cannot be solved by SP06

this is important for us since we are in the process of applying SP06

your inputs are highly appreciated

thanks

Hi Ramuald,

I'm also facing the same issue. I am using "Insert BPC for Excel object" and embedding more than one report of excel in Powerpoint in different slides.

Although, i'm using Expand All option, but still its not refreshing all the slides of the ppt.

Please let me know about the solution that you applied in your case.

Thanks and regards,

Umesh Jethwani.
