The Precalculation Server is a standalone application that allows you to generate and distribute Excel workbooks based on SAP BI data. Are you already using the Precalculation Server or would you like to take advantage of it in the future? I would be happy to explain the steps from installing the Precalculation Server to finally starting the instances on the target system so that you can use the Precalculation Server for your purposes. As a reader of our blog, you are certainly interested in tricks and tricks that will make your SAP system easier to handle. You may be familiar with the situation where you want to install a Precalculation Server yourself. Here you will learn how this task can be implemented in the SAP environment. Prerequisites For example, you need a Windows 7 or a Windows Server 2012 instance on which the Precalculation Server is installed to operate the Precalculation Server. Both 32 and 64-bit versions can be used. In addition, the machine requires a .NET installation to run the Precalculation Server in addition to a Microsoft Excel installation (32-bit version is essential). Download the installation files In advance, you should download the latest installation files from the official SAP website to the target computers. Cleanup Phase If you already have an existing installation on the system, the first thing you need to do is uninstall all items to use a clean host for the Precalculation Server. You can do this by calling the Windows Control Panel: The order must be followed according to the SAP documentation. Therefore, apply the following procedure for uninstallation, no installation of SAP should be visible anymore: Order: 1) SAP BW Precalculation Service 2) SAP Business Explorer 3) SAP GUI for Windows XY Note: During the installation and uninstallation of individual components, the progress bar status may be suspended at certain locations. This is not a cause for concern, but a normal behaviour. Often, it will stand at 92% or 95% for about 10 minutes.
Some missing SAP basic functions in the standard are supplied by the PC application "Shortcut for SAP Systems".
