Free Data Export add-on for SAP Dashboards

Posted by Xavier Hacking

I want to share a nice little add-on for SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards that is created by SAP BI consultant Ivo Moor and I just found out about. It is called the Data Export add-on and it lets you export data from a spreadsheet cell range to the clipboard, a MS Excel spreadsheet or both.

exportdata_1

The add-on itself is a button-like component, which appearance is fully customizable just like we are used from the standard components in SAP Dashboards. You can also bind the default file name for the export file to a cell in the spreadsheet (and thus make it variable with an Excel formula).

Best of all is that you can use this component for free. Check this site to download the add-on and for more information on obtaining a free license key.

      In some browsers the Add-On is downloaded as zip-file. Just change the zip-extension to xlx and the Add-On can be installed. Please let me know if you still have issues.

    Great add-on! Thanks for sharing.

    Would it be possible to have the data exported to an Excel sheet without having a user having to click on the button?

    Thanks again,
    Will
