Set up an Alert in WebI?

Hello gurus,


Is there any way in WebI to set up an alert if a query did not return any data? For instance a query would be scheduled to run every 2 hours to ensure Data was loaded for a table and send an email if no data was loaded. 


Thanks,

Thao

Hello Thao,

If I am not wrong, Email alert based on a report value is not available in WebI till now. This functionality is available in Crystal reports as mentioned by Philip. Below link shows how it is implemented in Crystal Reports.

Your WebI report is running to just ensure data load? If the report is scheduled for end users, you can restrict the execution of report till the completion of data load  by using Events in SAP BO so that users will not get blank report.

Hope it helps

Regards,
