BI on demand

Lubos Hajtinger
Currently Being Moderated



I just started to work with BI on demand, as empoyee of SAP development team.

I want to ask how could I upload some other documents, other than xls or crystal reports, like pdf, or txt.

My GUI doesnt give me any other options to upload or work with documents other than those.

Do I need more acces privileges, or something else?


Looking forward to any answers


Best regards

    If you are using the free version of BIOD, then yes, you are limited to uploading RPT, static Webi. Or you can create datasets based on XLS. To upload PDF or MS Office documents, you need to be using Essential Edition or Advanced Edition. These 2 editions give you an "Organization" section (instead of just "My Stuff" and "Shared with Me"). The Organization section allows you to create folders, upload PDF/MS Office, and secure those folders with groups of users.


    If you'd like, email me privately at SAP and we can discuss how to upgrade to Essential Edition.
