    Title:
    Essbase connection on Smart View change to new
    Summary:
    Is there a quick way to update SV connection on existing Essbase retrieve files?
    Content:

    We upgraded the Hyperion applications and users need to change to new connections on Smart View.

    When they open a Essbase retreive file, it still prompt them to connect to the old database (even though the old connections have been removed from Smart View already). They have to go to each tab, connect to the new database, click on "Ad hoc analysis" so that it takes the new connection.This only needs to be done once per tab. But it's still a lot of work.

    It seems the Essbase connection is stored as a "memory" in the files? Is there a way to quickly switch the files to the new connection? Thank you!

    They shouldn't have to go to each tab. Go to the Document Contents pane (click the down arrow next to the little house icon). On the dropdown just below the little house, select "All Conections" then click "Modify Connection" on the very botton.
