Organizing Workbooks Using BEx Browser

After saving the two workbooks in Section 5.1, we can reopen them using any of the following three methods.

Method 1: BEx Analyzer

If we now click graphics/workbooks.gif in Screen 5.20, we see the saved workbooks. If we double-click either of the workbooks, BEx Analyzer will open, and the saved workbook will be displayed.

Method 2: SAP GUI

Logging on to BW from SAP GUI, we see the workbooks listed under the Favorites folder (Screen 5.21). If we double-click either of them, BEx Analyzer will open, and the saved workbook will be displayed.

Method 3: BEx Browser

If we launch BEx Browser by selecting Start graphics/arrow1.gif Programs graphics/arrow1.gif SAP Frontend graphics/arrow1.gif SAP Business Explorer Browser from Windows and log on to the BW system, we see the two workbooks displayed as Favorites (Screen 5.22). If we double-click either one of them, BEx Analyzer will open, and the workbook will be displayed.

For now, we know that BEx Browser is just a workbook organizer and that BEx Analyzer displays our query results. After we open a workbook, we can refresh it to get up-to-date data from the database by clicking graphics/background.gif on the toolbar. In Chapter 6, Managing User Authorization, we will demonstrate how to access other information resources from BEx Browser.
