Why I created a blog

Its been many 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.

Smart View and Office 2016

I'm just returning from KScope 17 and while sitting in the airport, decided to talk about something I was asked multiple times during the week. There are multiple instances where people have issues with Smart View and Office 16 (or 13 or 10). while I am no expert in this, Oracle has a number of  white papers and tips and tricks for improving performance. I take no credit for them but list them below to hopefully help you out. As a note, The Smart View team really is interested in issues you have so if you run into something, submit an SR or enhancement request (If you are stuck, respond to this post and I'll try to help you navigate Oracle to get your issue resolved, no promises on results)

Hi Glenn, I remember that someone pointed toward that chapter not so long ago. The good thing is that you may access it from public EPM documentation index portal.

Really useful stuff here.

Here's the link for version
