  • The Business Objects connector is not supported in Excel 2016, I'm afraid. We have some unresolved licensing issues with SAP that prevent us from including it.

  • Curt,

    When could we expect a resolution of this issue in Excel 2016?

    On the other hand, PowerBI is not showing the connection to SAP Business Objects either (I recall it did some time ago), but shows connectors to SAP BW and HANA. Are such connections potentially subject to similar licensing issues with SAP? If not, how can Excel 2016 connect to SAP BW and/or HANA (these connections are not shown in Excel 2016 at the moment) ?

    thanks,

    Anselmo
