BI on Excel Roadmap – ASUG BusinessObjects Conference Update

The recordings below were made using the Beta Analysis 2.0 software.

The above recording reviews the ability to insert rows.  You can also define styles.  There is a third column on the Display panel called “Properties”.

My notes from SAP TechEd Las Vegas:

Swap Axes is now in Analysis Pane – rather than have take up ribbon approach – not everyday that people swap axis

Formats include New Line, table formatting and it allows you to take cross tab and insert line/blank space into table and held there with navigation

In the past if you inserted and refreshed you lost the formatting


This particular functionality is the same.

I also tried going from Analysis Office to Design Studio – it works the same:

    • Saida – thank you for watching; for the original purpose of the videos no audio was needed.  I decided to share them on SCN anyway without audio

      • Oh…

        Thanks Tammy … really good news for the  people who are working on AO….

        I feel very happy by seeing the new features which are available in AO 2.0 Beta version….

  • Hello Tammy,

    Do you know if this will be possable?

    Re-name the text of a column heading in Analysis (kind of like an alias name), but not change the underlying name in the query.

    An example would be: A column named “Invst_Reason” (in the query).

    For a small group of people they want the column to be “IR” in Analysis.

    We do not want to change the name of the column in the Query, for the rest of the users it is just fine.



    • Hi Lloyd – the beta is now over, so I didn’t try your scenario.  I am not sure; you could insert a new line with the renamed column but replacing it I am not sure.  Something to try when 2.0 becomes GA.
