How does SAP BO work?

Conditional Formatting – SAP BO

In SAP BUSINESS OBJECTS ( ANALYSIS, EDITION FOR OLAP those Exceptions are now called Conditional Formatting. Using Conditional Formatting you can set up thresholds and configure the different formatting options directly in SAP BUSINESS OBJECTS Analysis, edition for OLAP, which also means that you don’t have to create.

Exceptions in a BEX QUERY anymore as your business user is able to create Conditional Formatting in the BI client directly, which can also help reducing the overall number of needed BEx queries in that way.

In the menu Conditional Formatting, you will now find the defined set of rules by the Name we defined in the previous steps – Net Value > 10.000. You can use the menu option Edit to open the defined rules and change them, and you can use the menu option Delete to remove your defined rules. In addition, you can also use the toggle in front of the name of your defined Conditional Formatting to disable your rules without removing them from the workspace, which is especially helpful in situations where you defined several conditional formatting rules and want to use them as part of your workspace, but decide not to activate them all at the same time.
