Metadata Comparison

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.

The Problem: How do I compare outlines for two cubes?

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.

Once you’ve extracted the cubes’ outlines to two separate folders, you can run the ImportCSVs VBA Macro and generate a workbook that shows differences between cubes.

I have the code stored on Github. Here is a link to the project, which I’ll be updating whenever I get a chance.
