Scenario 6: I want to lock the data values found in my BW reports

So you've purchased and installed SAP BW at your company and you've created some basic reports. So far, so good -- but now it's time to take BW to the next level. This checklist provides you with proven project strategies that increase the use of your BW reporting. This is the sixth scenario.

Solution:

1. Launch the BEx Analyzer.
2. Using the Excel toolbar, open a previously saved workbook.
3. Execute the report by clicking the Refresh icon if it does not automatically get refreshed.
4. Using the BW BEx toolbar, select the Tools icon > SAP Protection.
5. From the pop-up window, input a password into both boxes.
6. Using the BW BEx toolbar, select the Save icon > Save Existing workbook.
7. Open the Workbook again and try to adjust individual cell values. Not possible!
