I have made a few updates to Dwayne’s extremely useful Universe Documentor.
Documents derived table sql
Alias and physical table names for objects and conditions,
textual descriptions rather than coded values for many items.
Additional universe param info.
Conditional formatting to highlight hidden objects.
Might be a bit selfish, but I’d prefer a new topic. A couple of reasons. I have an idea that I’ll update my version someday. Plus, I’d rather not have two separate “debugging” discussions mixed in one thread. Someone reports an error, and we have to ask “which version.”
Can you hold off till tomorrow please?
One of my developers has said he received an error with the util.
This may be a universe error, but until I know for certain I would rather safe than sorry.
I am just awaiting screenshots of the error now.
No worries, please post back here when you’re ready. The download is not available here so nobody will be able to download it until it’s released. Only moderators can see attachments in this forum. You’ve probably noticed you can’t even see your own attachment.
I have just double checked the util with the universe in question and the problem was in the universe after all (again, something not picked up by the integrity check process - invalid month/state on a date object).
I have been usin BOXI Universe Documentor V4 with great success. However due to a company policy I had to upgrade my pc to windows 7 with MS Offcie 2010. Now I am getting the error message “Failure in DocumentUniverse() VBO Project - 430: Class does not support Automation or does not suppot expect interface”. Is there a fix for this? Will this program run in MS Excel 2010? I hope so. If it is not possible, is there another way I can document a universe. The BOE that I am connecting to is XI\R2.
