    I can’t understand why is this functionality only in View mode. I always open the document through Modify and I thought that all Web Inteligence functionality is implemented through Modify.

    Do you know wether more functionality is available only in View mode?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Tanav,

    I have kept document link on my dashboard, whenever I click on it, it says ” failed. Please check the logs or contact your  sap business objects administrator”


    Before positing this message, I have removed link, added it back again. It did not work.


    Dashboard has 16 charts, each chart has one hyperlink, this specific link did not working
