if i understood correctly you suggest to install the "old" excel spread sheet addin instead of smart view.
The problem is that we (my company) won't rollout the excel spread sheet addin because it wont be supported anymore in the future.
therefore i am looking for a way to track all retrieves, logins or wathever of smartview (including generated mdx statements if possible)
Following Enhancement requests have been raised for this feature and will be implemented as per feasibility in the forthcoming releases. Bug 9155478: IMPROVED AUDIT LOGS FOR SMART VIEW Bug 12918768: AUDIT TRAIL OF SMARTVIEW LOGINS
