BusinessObjects Board

5.0 Download into Excel

Hi all. I’m new to the forum. I started a new job that runs Business Objects 5.0. My questions is, can I download to Excel with this verson? If so, where do I go to do it.

Welcome to B:bob:B! Unfortunately, that feature was not added until version 6. The typical work-around involved saving to HTML and then reading the HTML into Excel and saving as XLS.

Another option is to go to menu Edit -> Copy All and then paste it into blank Excel spredsheet.

Thanks everyone. I thought that was the case, but wanted to verify. I plan on posting often… :wink:
