2490470 - 3.x workbook cannot be migrated in BExAnalyzer 7.x


You want to migrate 3.x workbook to 7.x workbook by re-saving the workbook in BExAnalyzer 7.x, but the workbook cannot be saved with the original workbook ID.
Instead, a new workbook with a different ID is created.   

  • If you search the original workbook ID in BExAnalyzer 7.x, there's a message "workbook cannot be found in server".
  • If you open the 3.x workbook from favourite folder or role, the workbook can be opened. But if you go to workbook settings, you will find the workbook name is empty.

And the 3.x workbook is not available for Precalculation, although theoretically 7.x Precalculation Server should also work for 3.x workbooks.



  • BW system
  • BExAnalyzer 7.x
