Batch edit of BBK files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All!

    Is there any opportunity to batch change many Briefing Book files?

    I have more than 200 BBK file, i assume than more or less 50% have reference to one of dimension, which will have change name in near future.

    I want avoid opening each file and execute each report to get "missing data" message and change dimansion name - i have tried change dimension name by open this file in notepad and edit, but ProClarity can't open BBK file after this operation.

    Is there any other method to batch edit this file collection?

  • Hello,

    ProClarity Briefing Book files can be saved locally as .xml files - which can then be edited.  Books in the PAS repository DB also contain XML data but it is not supported to edit the DB directly.  You can retrieve the book, save it locally, edit it, and republish it if necessary.
