SAP Business Objects doesn’t make it easy to know when the query is completed running (at least not while you’re working on something else). I wrote an AutoHotKey script to alert me it is completed running (and boy does it alert me! LOL).
This way I can put BO in the background and continue working on other tasks. When the query is complete, I get both a visual and audio alert informing me it is complete.
I had a hard time “hooking” into Business Objects but I was able to monitor status bar to see when it changes/updates.
