There are a few tools out there for comparing Essbase outlines. I’ve put together some Excel VBA to do that for you once you’ve used the New Outline Extractor from AppliedOLAP to extract outlines.

There are a few tools out there for comparing Essbase outlines. I’ve put together some Excel VBA to do that for you once you’ve used the New Outline Extractor from AppliedOLAP to extract outlines.
