SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence (Webi) Folding & Unfolding Tutorial

The fold/unfold feature allows a user the ability to expand or hide sections of their report without having to drill down by using folds on sections or breaks. Watch the video above or read the steps below to learn how to do folding/unfolding in Web Intelligence.

For this tutorial, we are using the efashion universe and will focus on quantity sold by state and city. To demonstrate the folds we’ve already brought in the state, city and quantity of sold objects from the efashion universe and inserted them into a vertical table. 

Steps to Webi Folding and Unfolding

  1. First, we are going to create a break on the state
    1. Click on the Analysis Tab and them break under display
  2. Next, we want to get the sum of Quantity Sold for each state
    1. Select the Quantity Sold column
    2. Click on the functions tab under the Analysis Tab and press Sum
    3. Remove the sum text
  3. Now we are going to remove the repeating Break headers
    1. Right click on the table and go to Break >> Manage breaks
    2. Under display >> uncheck “Break Header”

Tip : Webi can be complicated. Our expert SAP BusinessObjects consultants can help. See how or contact us .

  1. After we have removed the Break Header, we need to add the Table Header
    1. Right click on the table >> select “Format Table”
    2. Check the box for “Table Headers”
  2. Last, we need to enable the option to allow the folding feature
    1. Go to the Analysis Tab
    2. Interact
    3. Select “Outline”
      1. You will notice now that an outline appears on the left hand side
      2. If we click on the “2” then all of the cities will fold up, leaving the city totals within each state
      3. If you click on the “1” then the city totals are folded up,  leaving you with only the state totals
      4. Last, if you click on “T” then it will show you the total sum of quantity sold for all of the states

Tutorial on Creating a Pre-Defined Cell Based on Query Prompt Enhancement in Web Intelligence 4.1 SP5

We’ve asked our team to come up with what they think are some great additions to BusinessObjects Web Intelligence 4.1 SP5 and are happy to share our thoughts with you. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to  reach out to us and ask .

How to Create a Pre-Defined Cell in Webi 4.1 

Compared to inserting a blank cell in a report, you can select a pre-defined blank cell as an alternate option.  A pre-defined cell includes the appropriate syntax already applied to the free standing cell instead of writing your own syntax.

For this example, we will be utilizing the ‘Prompt’ pre-defined cell option which is based on a report prompt.  After a dimension object is added to the Query filters area and enabled as a prompt, the newly created prompt is a selectable option in the Pre-Defined Cell>Prompt menu.  When you insert the ‘Prompt’ predefined cell in a report, the cell displays the user prompt selections from the last refresh or Run Query action.


Open Web Intelligence 4.1

Select your required dimensions and measures for your query

Create a prompt in the Webi query panel by dragging an object to the query filters section.

Click the object options from the down arrow menu.

Select ‘Prompt’


The prompt text will be auto populated in the text box. You can customize the prompt text if required.


Run your query

Select the ‘Report Element’ tab in Webi toolbar

Click ‘Pre-Defined’ option and mouse over ‘Prompt’ option

Then, select the text from your prompt created in the query panel

Click and drop the blank Pre-Defined cell anywhere on the Webi canvas


The Pre-Defined cell now displays the year you selected in your query prompt
You can use this function to display the value of any prompt on your Webi report
