In an upcoming upgrade this month, SAP BusinessOnbjects BI OnDemand will improve its support for large datasets. Currently, datasets are restricted to 100,000 rows of data and will expand to 200,000 rows. The opening and exploring of datasets will also be seen to be much faster.
New datasets that are published after the upgrade will display immediate results. Pre-published datasets that are larger than 20,000 rows will require reactivating.
To reactivate the data, use these steps.
- Open your large dataset.
- In the Data tab, click Browse.
- Find the original file that you previously uploaded to bi.ondemand.com and click Open. The file must be in the same format as before.
- Click Refresh.
NOTE: If you had previously applied a filter to the dataset, the filter will need to be reapplied.
The upgrade is planned for March 25th, 2011 (Subject to change)
