Please only post SAP Business Objects products related questions here

Thanks for reading.
Unfortunately many people get confused with the term BI which was used for SAP BW at one time. With the acquisition of Business Objects some product names have changed.
SAP BW is still SAP BW, please post in the respective forums: /community [original link is broken]
Business Intelligence in this forum refers to the these SAP Business Objects products:
SAP Business Objects Enterprise
SAP Business Objects 4.0
SAP Business Objects Intelligence Platform 4.0

Hi Suresh
Thank you for the detailed response.  I tried your suggestions and neither works.
LOV issue:
Within the Business View manager, i right-click on the LOV object and click "Edit List of Values..." and i get a dialog box that only shows me Available fields, List of Value Fields used, description field, and Referenced objects. Along with buttons for Clear Instance & Refersh Status.
I have read similar posts to what you suggested but never get to the same place as described.
Please advise....
as for _Max Number LOV _
I have researched this as well and found the same suggestion you made. But the PRM file does not have that value, and the file contains all XML code
Now what???

  • Free Trial SAP Business Warehouse 7.4 SP5 incl. SAP Business Objects BI 4.1 SP2 on SAP HANA 1.0 SP7

    I have 2 questions:
    Relating to accepting Terms and Conditions:
    If I click <Try Now> for solution SAP Business Warehouse 7.4 SP5 incl. SAP Business Objects BI 4.1 SP2 on SAP HANA 1.0 SP7
    and scroll down Terms and Conditions, the button <I Accept> remains disabled.
    Other solutions like SAP HANA, developer edition 1.0 Rev 80 I can accept.
    I have to mention, that so far I have no CAL account
    Is it possible to choose another Amazon Instance Type - instead of the default one (r3.8xlarge with 244 GB RAM)?
    I don't need 244 GB RAM on my BW on HANA server.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Harald,
    ad 1) I assume that this is caused by a browser bug. Which browser (IE8, FF31, Lynx, ...) are you using on which operating system (Windows 7, SUSE Linux, ...)? Have you tried another browser to narrow down the possible root causes?
    ad 2) The 244Gb instance is not only hosting HANA but also the ABAP/BW portion. In order to have all the demo scenarios of the BW on HANA Trial working it is required that the HANA server has 244GB of memory available. With less than 244Gb the demo scenarios wouldn't work and then there would be users complaining ;-)

  • SAP Business Objects Explorer on top of SAP BW

    Dear Experts,
    My Requirement:
    -  Use BO Explorer on top of SAP BW ( no HANA, no BIA ). This is to provide the users a set of related data and they can analyse the way they want.
    - What should be the BW data volume that I should keep in mind for BO Explorer to have good performance. My concern is primarily because we don't use BIA or HANA.
    - Can BO Explorer directly connect to a BW Infocube/Multiprovider or it has to connect only through Universes

    I will suggest you Go for SAP Business Objects Analysis, edition for Microsoft Office,ity can connect bex query directly & Bw/Infocubes also.
    Regarding Performance we can do In BI Itself depends on Business needs,: modelling , extraction, reporting 3 levels in BI .

  • Migration of SAP Business Objects BI Platform 4.1 from Windows(OS), SQL Server(DB) to AIX(OS) and Oracle(DB).

    Dear All,
    I have SAP Business Objects BI Platform 4.1  running on window servers and sql server database. We want to migrate this to  AIX and oracle.
    Can you please share what should be the best approach to carry on this migration?

    Hi Mohammed,
    Regarding your Query below is the suggestion:
    Step I: Preparing for moving BOBJ application from Windows to AIX
    There are some tasks that you need to perform:
    To configure the existing deployment
    Perform inventory and cleanup, to ensure that only the required content is moved.
    Run the Repository Diagnostic Tool to detect any inconsistencies between the File Repository and the CMS repository. The upgrade management tool will not run successfully if there are inconsistencies between the File Repository and the CMS repository.
    Identify any content that the upgrade management tool can't upgrade, along with the process required to upgrade that content. There is some content like Voyager Workspaces or Desktop Intelligence documents that require manual intervention before running the upgrade management tool.
    Back up existing repositories, including the system database and the Input and Output File Repository Servers.
    Back up custom web applications, HTML pages, and scripts in your existing deployment.
    To configure the planned BI 4.x deployment
    Setup and configure the Middleware and ODBC connections.
    Ensure that your machines meet the deployment system's requirements, you can find information about the supported platforms in the Platform Availability Matrix (PAM) -> Help and Support -> SAP BusinessObjects Support -> Documentation -> Supported Platform s/PARs -> SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.x
    Step II:
    You can use database backup & FRS backup (Offline) in new environment (AIX) to deploy BOBJ 4.x Version
    Take the help of DBA to move CMS & AUDIT database backup from SQL Server (Windows) to Oracle (AIX)
    Test the Universe,reports, Check the rights
    Step III:
    If you are configured any SSO then make sure that same configuration is deployed in new environment (AIX).
    Test the user SSO in new environment (AIX).
    You can also use Promotion manager to move the contenet from Windows (Business Objects Application) to UNIX (Business Objects Application)
    Only prerequisite is Business Objects Application version should be same.
    You can copy content only 50 Object at a time in One Job
    FRS Offline backup is required.
    Necessary files regarding custom web applications, HTML pages, and scripts in your existing deployment.
    Please refer the below KBA for more details

  • BI Accelerator used in combination with SAP Business Objects Explorer

    Hi ,
    If you use SAP Netweaver BWA and SAP Business Objects Explorer Blade, do you only get the full benefit with using SAP BO Explorer, or will the same queries ran in BEx 7 Anaylser also benefit from the in memory OLAP processing?
    I'm guessing that the SAP BOE Blade will only benefit SAP BOE.
    It would be great if the current BWA had the ability to in-memory the OLAP part of the processing, as then it might be worth the hassle of getting it installed.

    May be the note : 1384526, could give you an insight.

  • Query on SAP Business Object and Content shipment..

    I know about SAP Business Suite... & SAP Business One... But what is :
    1. SAP Business Object and
    2. Content Shipment
    The definitions on the SAP Release & Maintenance Strategy and other docs on SDN were not too clear for my understanding. I want to know why are they used / where are they applied ? E.g: if you have a SAP BW system.. why would you need SAP BW Content ? where does it fit in the picture and what purpose does it serve...
    (PS: it would be great if someone can share the product / functionality details of their landscape where these systems are used, how does it benefit the business operations and any other purpose of having them... )

    Hi Ashim,
    If your client want it to be done in one database, then the answer is no if you do not have any add-on or SDK codes.  Most difficult part is authorization since I believe what you mean project here is not the same as project center in B1,
    If your client allow more than one database, then the configuration will be easy.
