How To Determine the Level of Effort for Content Migration


You should do a full analysis of your existing content for any usage of the following functions. Any content containing these
deprecated functions should be documented in a migration plan and updated after the technical upgrade is complete.
Anything with the following functions MUST be updated after upgrading to BPC NW 10.0.
Functions No longer Supported from BPC 7.5 to 10.0.

EVEXP (utilize the new Report Editor instead)


EVENE
EVNXP
EVSET
EVLST
EVPXR
EVHOT (now known as Quick Links functionality in the EPM add-in)

Any content that uses the following EV functions below should be updated to its corresponding EPM function to achieve
peak performance. However, they are backward compatible and will continue to work after the upgrade. Excellent news for
our upgrade customers, allowing for a quick win right after the technical upgrade is complete.
