Logging In to Essbase

To use Spreadsheet Add-inwith Essbase, you must first log in to an Essbase Server.


Essbase does not support multiple instances of Excel.

*  To log in to the server:

  1. In Excel, select Essbase, and then Connect, to open Essbase System Login.

  2. In Server, select the server to access or enter a server name.

  3. Enter your user name.

  4. Enter your password.

  5. Click OK.

    When your server connection is complete, a list of available application and database pairs displays in the Application/Database list.

  6. In Application/Database, select an application and database pair, and click OK.

    If the application is not running, Essbase automatically starts it. There may be a brief pause as the application loads; the time required to start an application depends on the size and number of databases contained within the application and the size of their indexes.
