Presentation of the Data Analysis Solution for SAP Business One

BVxL differs from other reporting products, such as Crystal Reports, as it combines data management capability with the reporting power and flexibility of Excel.

Data Management.
The data manager enables tables to be linked by key fields, then Data Marts created by selecting specific fields from the set of linked tables. Field names and descriptions can be changed and new virtual fields created so users can be presented with an easy to understand source of data for their reports.

Reporting
BVxL connects Excel both to the core tables of SAP Business One and to the views created by the Data Management System. Once a spreadsheet has been created in Excel using BVxL it updates automatically if any of the parameters, such as date ranges or department codes are changed or if the source data changes.
The reporting tools provided by BVxL to assist with the creation of dynamic spreadsheets are contained within a drop down menu located from Excels main menu.

Add In Tables
BVxL also has the capability to create and add new reporting tables into the SAP database. Such tables can be used for grouping purposes or for general data capture and can be linked to and reported on the other core SAP tables.
