There may be times when you need to customize the Office Ribbon with Analysis buttons, or you need to provide documentation to your users that depicts Analysis buttons. There’s no way that I know of to extract the icons from the Analysis ribbon tab, but thankfully almost all of the icons are available in the Analysis help file – and they’re in GIF format, with transparent backgrounds too!

The Analysis help file is a Compiled HTML Help file, which by default will open with Microsoft HTML Help, but the file-format is actually an LZip file, which can be opened with ZIP programs like 7-Zip.

You can find the various language versions of the help file in “C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\Analysis\Help”, and once you’ve opened the help file with a program like 7-zip (I’ve used the English version of the help file), you can find the icons in “C:\Program Files\SAP BusinessObjects\Analysis\Help\AaoHelp_en.chm\html\images\”

Remember that these icons will be probably be subject to copyright and fair-use, so take care to use them accordingly.
