Financial Reporting is a tool for data retrieval, not for submitting/updating data in Essbase. The alternative to Smart View for entering data into a BSO cube (such as Hyperion Planning) would be a Web Form. Are you trying to setup a Web Form to enter data in to Planning?
Link to the FR users guide:
I was flirting with the idea of using an FR report to submit data to the underlying database - I read in the 220.127.116.11 release that you could input data in and FR report to planning.
i am working with HPCM and there is no way to design a data form in HPCM like you would in planning. As a work around, I used Web Analysis b/c you can do it there. Not sure about OBIEE.
