  • Hi,

    We are having huge performance issues on BEX queries. The queries are very slow when they are run from BEX. We don’t have BWA. We using BW 7.0 on support package 24 and using 7.10 GUI. Any ideas on what can help speed up the query runtime? Unfortunately these queries cannot be run in the web as they do have an income statement and balance sheet with hierarchies per profit centre. There are about 1000 rows and quite a few columns. Please assist.
