Errors in the OLAP storage engine: The attribute key cannot be found: Table: table_name, Column: col


I get this error on occasion while processing (full) the OLAP database, and I know that the value 822518 is part of my dimension table refered by the fact table.  I usually just re-process (full) the OLAP database and don't get the error anymore.  Is this a problem with the order in which the objects are processed?  If so, how can I change that?



User-specific application settings vs Isolated Storage


I was wondering what's the difference between these two ways to store user-specific settings.

In isolated storage you're supposed to have the security that the path to the files is unknown. But MSDN still recommends not to store sensitive information. On the other hand, user-specific settings, maybe with default values in the app.config file, are also stored in a randomly generated folder. In this case I imagine that you can encrypt the user settings the same way you do with the app.config file.

My question is, what are the advantages of using one method over the other to store user-specific settings?

Errors in the OLAP storage engine.The attribute key cannot be found.


Hi Experts:

Please help me with this problem, thanks!

Following is details:

Errors in the OLAP storage engine: The attribute key cannot be found when processing: Table: 'dbo_IRS_DIM_CUSTOMER', Column: 'CUSTOMER_NAME', Value: '????????? ????????????'. The attribute is 'CUSTOMER NAME'. Errors in the OLAP storage engine: An error occurred while the 'IRS DIM CUSTOMER' attribute of the 'IRS DIM CUSTOMER' dimension from the 'IRS_CUBE' database was being processed.

Essentially the workflow is , Spool data from Oracle db to flat text format -> Import data into SQL server from flat text -> Build cube -> Do some analysis.

We have two servers in different location. The server in Euro works perfectly but the other always encounters the previous error. Both servers' Language for non-Unicode programs are set to 'English(US)' by the way. Howerver, the server in Euro use '???????' to represent Chinese or Japanese words while the other server use some sort of mess codes(a black diamond with a white question mark inside).

I wonder if it is because the mess code causes this problem, but actually I still cannot understand why there's a different while spooling data.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Many, many thanks!
