There are two ways to define a default workbook in Analysis for Office (AO). Either every user can define autonomously a Workbook as default Workbook or the IT sets this globally for all users permanently. The first way is very time-consuming because you have to define the default workbook for every Analysis Office User manually. The second way is much more comfortable.
In the path "C:\Users\*USER*\AppData\Roaming\SAP AG\SAP BusinessObjects Advanced Analysis\Settings\Document" will be a XML file with the name "DefaultWorkbookPath.xml" applied.
The contents of the file is as follows:
<xml version="1.0"?><DefaultWorkbookPath scope="user" type="string" fullpath="/Settings/Document/DefaultWorkbookPath">Path</DefaultWorkbookPath>
The IT can distribute the file.
