Creating a dimension with Interface tables

For the ones who have started using BPMA to manage the outline in Hyperion Planning, there are two options to create the dimensions. Either make the .ads file or populate the Interface tables with the relevant information.

Google Translate Bookmarklet

I find myself going to the Google Translate or Bing Translate service quite often when I stumble across foreign words. My browser of choice or should I say browsers of choice are Firefox and Chrome, both of which have addons for translation.

I’m Back!

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been away from my blog for a very very very long time and it feels great to be back and writing again. I’ve been very busy with a lot of things and I suppose all of the things I’ve been doing will slowly make their way onto the blog.

For one, the Hyperion Planning – System 9: Installation Guide is now being made into an ePUB. It’s not going to be a flat old conversion from a PDF to ePUB but a genuinely made for ePUB eBook.

I’d love to see how I can place this book so that everyone can get them for their iPad, Kindle, Nook or the others. So please do leave any info in the comments!
