BI Query saved in Excel workbook
Posted on 2007-03-21
Can someone please clarify these 2 BI Query questions (version 7):
1. If I open a query workbook that is stored on the BI server and refresh it and then save it to a drive on a server other than the BI server as an .XLS file, can that XLS workbook still refresh the query and retrieve data into the XLS workbook on the non-BI server, as if it were on the BI server, or only if it has certain connectivity, or not at all? In other words, do I lose all BI functionality when saving it off of the BI server or can I save it as an XLS file on the BI server and still maintain the ability to refresh the query.
and 2. as above, at what point do I lose the capability to drill back into my transaction data in ECC.
