More PerformancePoint Server 2007 Hotfixes Available

Posted by denglishbi on September 4, 2009

I decided to browse the Microsoft Support area to see if there were any more fixes available as we are all patiently awaiting the release of SP3 for PerformancePoint Server (PPS) 2007 (apparently this is now slated for October according to this posting in the threads – Performance Point under Windows 7).  I did find a couple more since my previous posting back in May, PerformancePoint Server 2007 Hotfixes Available and Build List.  Both of these do have fixes in for the Monitoring & Analytic portions and the latest one does have a new fix for the Planning portion also.

I have included the build number that the hotfix is associated with along with the KB number reference.

Build Number Link KB Number
3.0.4318.00 Description of the PerformancePoint Server 2007 hotfix package: June 17, 2009 971928
3.0.4317.00 Description of the PerformancePoint Server 2007 hotfix package: May 26, 2009 970524

Some of the new fixes that are available in the latest hotfixes that might be of interest to you are:

  • Fix for the disappearing Analytical Chart toolbar when you click on the Filter buttons to remove empty items (it still does disappear when you click on the drop down arrow and select Reset View though)
  • Fix for exporting an Analytical Chart with more than 14 items in the legend.  Now all of the items will be exported to Excel if there are more than 14
  • Another fix for exporting to Excel with scorecards to resolve issue of exporting values from 9.5 to 9.9 so that they maintain their format instead of being multiplied by 100
  • For Planning the fix was to remove a duration restriction for extending the calendar to a value greater than 25 (now you can go up to 200)

These are just a few of the minor fixes that were done, check out the official links above to see the complete list for each hotfix and just a reminder that these are cumulative, so if you download the latest it will include all of the previous hotfixes also.

Here is the previous list I posted and I updated the list to include the KB number.

Hopefully the full SP3 will be available soon.  Until then, take a look at some of these fixes to see if it resolves an issue that you are currently experiencing like the one that I had posted with referencing SSRS 2008 reports in Native Mode – PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer ‘Unable to connect to server’ with SSRS 2008.

UPDATE (10/16/2009): PerformancePoint Server (PPS) 2007 SP3 now available
