  • 1. processing a cube using MDX
    Hi guys, Is it possible to process / reprocess a cube using an MDX query from the sample MDX application shipped with Analysis Services as opposed to having to use Analysis Manager and right clicking on the cube and manually processing / reprocessing the cube? Allen Firth XXXX@XXXXX.COM
  • 2. Problem with logical model OLAP
    Hi, I have a problem with designing the logical database model which afterwards will be use for OLAP. I have two tables: Patients(patient id(PK), age,....) and Surgery(patientid(FK),surgeryid(PK),attribute_1(bit),attribute_2(int), tribute_n(bit)). We have around 200 similar tables as Surgery. In each table there are between 1000 and 10000 records. I need following output: Count of patients having each attribute if it is bit or sum of atributes if it is INT. Alexandar Talev MCDBA,MCT

  • 4. Cube Processing after SP3a
    Hi all, I had a DTS package running as a scheduled job that processed some cubes. This was running fine until last friday when somebody applied SP3a to both the AS and the SQL server that it gets its data from. Previously both were running under SP2. Now the jobs never finish. They hang, and as I have to terminate the job manually the DTS log never gets written, so I do not know if it is one cube that is hanging, or if the problem is just SP3 related. Anyone have any similar experiences? The cubes are not particularly complex, ther are no very large dimensions, but a job that used to take roughly 4 hours now is still 'running' after 14 hours!!! Any pointers appreciated.

I have problem to processes any cube including sample cubes from FoodMart
I alway receive error This process option is not supported by the cube
I have W2K SP4, SQL Server and AS with SP3.

Thank You for your help!

2.How to set the filter for incremental cube/partition process in AM

In AS 2000, to incrementally process a cube/partition, I can use a script 
component to set the filter.  How do I do the same in AS 2005 using AMO?  TIA.

3.Analysis Services Processing Task Not Processing Cubes Correctly

I have a DTS package that is set up to process the dimensions
contained in my cubes.  They are set to rebuild the dimension
structures (and process).  I have another DTS package that is set to
process the cubes, and these are set to do a full process.  However, I
recently changed some of the data in one of the dimension tables, ran
the packages that are supposed to rebuild the dimension structure and
do a full process of the cubes, but I did not see the changes
reflected within that dimension in the cube.  I then re-ran the
packages: same thing.  So I manually rebuilt and processed the
dimensions and did a full process of the cube.  I then was able to see
the changes reflected in the cube.  How is this possible?  The DTS
Analysis Services Processing Task does not appear to be doing what it
says it is doing.  By the way, I could not determine whether it was
the dimension that was not really being rebuilt or the cube that
wasn't really being fully re-processed, b/c I have too much data in
the dimension to see all of the data in the dimension when I choose
'browse data'...the data of concern was toward that bottom of the
list, and the end of the list said something like '(more members exist
than can be displayed)'.  I do know, however that that relational
dimension table did show my changes.  Can anyone tell me why the DTS
packages aren't doing what they should be doing?  Thanks!

5.Problem in copying a cube using Decision Support Objects (DSO)

I have code that copies a cube and all its dimensions to a new cube ,
and adds the new cube to a newly created database. The database is
then added to the analysis server, all using the interface provided by
DSO. The database is UPDATEd after adding the new cube. I also process
the cube programmatically after changing the name of the fact table to
one a new one in the join and from clauses of the cube. While
debugging, I have verified that the join clause and from clause
correctly have the new fact table name. The operation succeeds without
problems and the cube gets listed when I open Analysis Manager.
However, when I right-click on the cube and choose Edit, the editor
does not show any tables in the designer pane, as if no joins have
been specified. When I try to process the cube through the editor, I
get an error saying a dimension table has not been joined to the fact

Can someone suggest something I am leaving out? The original cube does
not have this problem, and the code that copies the cube is :
