SAP Analysis 2.8 ( GA by November 29th)  brings a structural code change in EPM Plug in.

Indeed, EPM Plug in code has been replaced  by EPM add-in code.

Main goal is to ensure smooth transition to the EPM version contained into SAP Analysis for Office  and simplify user experience:

  • No VBA replacement required anymore as both VBA EPM standalone as VBA EPM plug in are recognized

  • Extensions of the EPM add in code can also leverage from EPM Plug in ( e.g SAP Integrated Business Planning Excel front end )

  • Dedicated Start menu Short cuts for EPM (Word,Excel,PPT)

  • About box & installer mentions EPM add in version


  • BPC plug in not yet supported ( planned SP1)

  • Refresh all / Refresh Workbook
