Using Open Items
Open Items from Navigate displays a list of opened documents, so you can quickly switch
between the opened documents.
Using Smart View
Smart View provides a common Microsoft Office interface for Essbase, Financial Management,
Planning, and four Workspace components:
SQR Production Reporting
Interactive Reporting (Smart View export options not enabled)
The centralized interface enables simultaneous use of multiple Hyperion products and improves
integration with Microsoft Office (2000, 2002, and 2003). The Smart View implementation
provides the following Workspace functionality:
Exports the current page of the current data object to Excel, Word, or PowerPoint
Exposes Financial Management and Essbase functions in Excel, Word, and PowerPoint
Notifies you when you can upgrade to new releases of Smart View
Smart View enables two export options:
You can export the current page of the current data object to Word, PowerPoint, or Excel
as an image, and later, re-query the Web application to refresh the image.
You can export documents to Excel as query-ready or formatted HTML.
When you export content as query-ready HTML, the current page of the current data object is
converted to HTML, and Hyperion-specific formatting is removed. Thus, Smart View can re-
query the data source independent of the Web application.
When you export content as formatted HTML, the current page of the current data object is
converted to HTML, and Hyperion formatting definitions and calculated members are retained.
Thus, Smart View cannot directly query the data source, but Hyperion content can be leveraged
by Microsoft Office applications. Not all export options are supported by all data sources and
Web applications. See Chapter 3, “Exploring and Managing Items .”
You can use Workspace favorites and personal pages to personalize the process of organizing,
accessing, and viewing documents. See Chapter 2, “Setting Preferences and Personalizing your
