Excel 2007 – CubeValue Reporting and Excel Services

Within PerformancePoint, and for cubes in general, Excel is usually the reporting tool of choice, or the tool being replaced by Monitoring scorecards.  The pivot table in Excel can only get you so far in terms of set-based reporting.  Sometimes free-form reports are required.

These functions provide this ability in Excel.  

This page presents how to work with Microsoft Excel 2007 features and its redesigned interface. You may also visit our Excel Question page.

Once the reports are built, they need to be consumed.  Other than email distribution or publishing to a document library, Excel Services would be the preferred display method for companies using Sharepoint 2007 Portal Server Enterprise. (MOSS)

There are some whitepapers for Configuring Excel Services to support this functionality.

Jack is my friend and he asked me about excel problems. I offered him to use a tool, which was found on a soft blog. It helped me some times and probably would one of the best resolutions for such problem as well as mine - microsoft excel restore old copy.
