Why I created a blog

Its been four years since I first created this blog. It has remained true to Essbase and related information over those years. Hopefully it has answered questions and given you insight over those years. I will continue to provide my observations and comments on the ever changing world of EPM. Don't be surprised if the scope of the blog changes and brings in other Hyperion topics.

Quick Smart view post

This will just be a short post that might help you out.
A number of Ace Director friends and I met with the Oracle Smart View Team at Oracle Open world this week and evangelized for you all on changes to the product. More posts will be coming out from all of us on some things we learned and if you follow us all there might be overlap. We just want to get the word out to as many as we know.

One thing that came out during the meeting is there are two Excel Add-ins that cause issues for Smart View and it is suggested you turn them off when using Smart View.
The first is the Webex add-in and the second is the Adobe PDF add-in. something in the way they take control of spreadsheets messes with smart view functionality and stability.

I'll be putting a slightly longer blog post together later on some Knowledge base articles that help with fixing some common problems.
