OBIEE 11.1.1.7 - New Features And Recommendations For Working With Microsoft Office

(in via Martin)

If you are working with OBIEE and have not signed up for the Oracle OBIEE community yet, then you probably have missed the release of the PDF attached to KM Doc:

OBIEE 11.1.1.7 - New Features And Recommendations For Working With Microsoft Office [ID 1558070.1]

It features information such as:

  • Integration Features (OBIEE vs MS Office)
  • Performance considerations
  • Export Limitations
  • Machine Configuration Tips and
  • report size estimations

Some screenshots in the PDF of reports outline the difference between various export functions (such as):


All in all, it will allow you to understand your OBIEE better. It guides you to integrate your OBIEE with SmartView and Office in ways that you might not have thought of, and alone for that I would consider this a must read for any (new) OBIEE user out there.

(unfortunately we can not attach the PDF to this blogpost for legal reasons - you need to go to MOS to actually look at the KM doc and the PDF)

Essbase Data precision unraveled

(guest reference added by Nancy)

Anyone who has been working with Data import and exoport as well as the Essbase Excel Add In has probably come across a phenomenon that is called data precision:

Lots of zeroes are added to any given number that has been calculated by Essbase, and this gets displayed as "10.0000000000001" or "9.99999999999999" instead of a simple "10" .

This question is one of the recurring ones that Support get asked over and over again, and we therefore feel the need to give an explanation to it:

I would like to point you to the note The Limits of Data Precision in Essbase (Doc ID 1311188.1) which explains in detail why these numbers are showing up and what to do about it.
