How many times have you been in a situation where you have to traverse through hundreds of lines and errors from an Essbase data load only to figure out that all the rejected records are caused by an issue with one member?  You load the file again and wham – another error file with issues you didn’t see the first time.

Although this is typically less of an issue in a production environment, these situations are very likely in the development and testing phases of a project.

Many of the Hyperion Planning and Essbase users still prefer to use the Essbase Add-In in conjunction with, or in place of, SmartView. As you probably already know, deploying the Essbase Add-In in version 11 has challenges. There is over 2GB of data that is required and the installtool.cmd file is not a simple installation that most users can administer without help. Because of the size, deploying it in a distributed package is extremely challenging. There are some instructions on various BLOGs that explain a way to deploy it manually, with edits to the registry. Any time I work with a client and mention editing the registry outside an automated install, this option is quickly disregarded.

In version 11.1.2, Oracle|Hyperion has added a self contained executable for the Essbase Add-In! The download is located in the Hyperion Essbase’s download page.
