How to read Data of a Webi Report

Hello Friends,
I have a task where I need to read data of a Webi Report, how can it be done?
Basically I have a trigger report which runs every day and get the latest RACN number from the database. I am trying to get that RACN number from trigger report using BOBJ SDK.
I really appreciate your suggestions on this.

Hi Rakhy,
Is the RACN Number a column or dimension in your webi report? Is it a universe object(webi based on universe)
Also what version of BusinessObjects you are using?
If you are using XI 3.1 and you need to retrieve objects from a webi report it can be done using the ReportEngine SDKs.
Please refer to the developers guide and API referrence guide available at
Also refer to the document at for better understanding the workflow.
An example snippet of how to retrieve an object is below
DocumentInstance wiDoc = widocRepEngine.openDocument(oInfoObject.getID());
ReportDictionary reportDictionary=wiDoc.getDictionary();
for(int a=0;a<reportDictionary.getChildCount() ;a++)
String name=reportDictionary.getChildAt(a).getName();

  • How to Read Data from a table (horizontal axsis) in an existing report

    Hi to all,
    I've a question. I must read the data in a table of an existing report. I develope with BO XI 3.0
    I don't know how to reach the table in my report from SDK.
    this is my code:
    reports = document.getReports();
    rep = reports.getItem(0);     
    the report has the title and a table horizontal axsis.
    I must read the column name(header column) of the table and all rows for retrieving values.
    Thank u in advance for your attention.

    hi ChinMay,
    thank u for your answer.
    I would like to ask u if Ireport refers crystal reports, while i mean to read data from a webi report.
    I've tried in many manners to read this data and i've read the SDK, but i'm unable to reach the table of my report for reading its rows. i'm able to export in XML format, i'm able to get reportelement , block, but in the java's example of SDK its not present how to obtain the reportbody and subsequently the section or directly a table. the example that i've seen show that if u create a new report u can create the reportbody, the section, the table and others. But don't show how to obtain this from an existing report.
    Probably i don't understand very well all the SDK structure and i think that is possbile to read a table(with horizantal axis) in a report without section only passing by the ReportBody.
    I know that u don't have so time to spent for things that are in the SDK, but if it's possible to have ten rows of sample about this question i'll be very happy.
    If it's not possibile, thank u very much for your interesting and disponbility and i'll try again and again and again to solve this.

  • How to show muliti language data correctly using webi reports

    Hi ,
    Can you please suggest me how to show multi language data correctly in webi reports .
    Do we need to install any lang pack in both server and client machine ?
    Thanks & Regards

    you mean using translation manager? or data from DB? or both.
    You need to make sure that your DB is already configured for multiple languages.
    Enable the OS for multi languages
    On XIR3.1, you will need to install language packs on the processing servers.  then you can utilize translation manager.
    Installation of Language Packs are a pain to install and update.

  • Time delay on seeing the changed data onto the webi reports

    I'm new to BOBJ and was hoping someone can help me with adjusting the time delay the reflects the changed data to the Webi reports.
    I have a user that would update a form on our EP.  Afterward, she would have to wait a while before she can see the changed data on our Webi reports.
    can you please tell me the default time lag and show me where I can change it if required?

    Thanks for the reply.
    Our BO is 3.1 SP4.
    We just implemented PBF (Public Budget Formulation) and our forms are running on NWCE server.  It's being written to our backend BW 7.01 SP8 server.  I was told by our users that after she updates some new information on the form, it takes a while before she can see it on the reports.  My understanding was the universe should see the updated data from our BW immediately after they refresh.  Just as you both mentioned.  But according to the users, its not.  there's a time delay.
    I'm going to test this myself if there's a delay.  In the meantime and suggestion would be helpful.
