usually, you would create an odbc data source, provide all credentials, then you would use it from your application

ODBC sounds right.  Do you have sample program?  What kind of Hyperion database is that?

Thanks.

By that, I meant going to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Data Sources (ODBC)

Then, adding your data source. If you have your data source driver installed, you should have it in the list of data source that appeared when you click Add.

That would register your data source on your machine and you'd be able to use it in applications.

That is quite generic infomartion applicable to any ODBC data source.

On the other hand, after quick looking at this manual, it seems to me that Hyperion is just a name of the application (not a database system) and it probably uses some kind of MS database engine... You shouldn't need in theory to log into the database at all - most what you might need is to log in to this application. If you have installed this application and don't have log in name and password, try contacting people that provided you with this software (or software manufacturer).

Good luck,
Yurich

I like to use a script to extract HFM data.  Right now, the HFM data is in Oracle and I am afraid that Oracle is raw data.  Maybe I need to use API call to extract the HFM data

I'm sorry, you lost me... How is it related to you not being able to log in into your Hyperion application?

Do you know how to extract using HFM API?  After some research, I am sure that is the way to go.  Thanks.

I don't know how to extract data using HFM API. Your initial question was about loggin into a database, and I gave you some pointers on how you could do this. If you read the manual (the one that you gave a link for), it describes how to extract data, but in the excel format. As it's in the excel format, I would suggest that the backcore of the database would be in one of the MS Jet formats used for excel and access.
