  • 33. SAP Business Explorer (BEx)Maintenance BEx 7.0 continues to be delivered with the next SAP NetWeaver BW releases. At this point in time, there‘s no planned end of life. The maintenance period is renewed with every major BW release. BEx 3.5 is part of BW 3.5/SAP NetWeaver 04 and the maintenance cycle is coupled to this release (see SAP note 1410878). BEx 3.5 in BW 7.0x and BW 7.3x will be supported while BEx 3.5 (NetWeaver 2004) is in extendend Maintenance (2013). Note that full PAM support of BEx 3.5 cannot be granted by SAP – as Microsoft has removed, e.g., support for some components within Windows 7 that had been used by BEx Web Application Designer 3.5. Also see: https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/bexCoexistence BEx Analyzer and Analysis, edition for MS Office You can install BEx and Analysis on a single PC. Only one add-in can be active in an Excel session (in other words, either BEx or Analysis can be active) Opening a BEx workbook activates the BEx add-in.
