Introduction to MS Excel IntegrationThe Business Explorer Analyzer offers convenient functions for Business Experts to evaluate and present BI data interactively within MS Excel. A user can define queries and subsequently analyze the data. Using embedded navigation functions (e.g., expand hierarchy, filter a characteristic by a characteristic value and so on) a business user is able to look at and evaluate data from different perspectives.

Key CapabilitiesBI data is easily embeddable into MS Excel Business users can utilize their Excel know-how and use Excel functionality on top of BI data. SAP NetWeaver 7.0 provides enhanced navigation features such as Drag & Drop SAP NetWeaver 7.0 provides additional functionality such as a design mode and leverages Excel formatting and formula features BI Planning is completely integrated BI data has to be easily distributable. Hence, BEx Analyzer Workbooks can be pre-calculated and distributed via Information Broadcasting
