SSAS 2008 - The OLAP data source has no property fields available for this dimension


Last week I was able to view member properties for my Product Dimension in Excel 2010 pivot tables. Suddenly, without having made any changes to the dimension (for example, in the Attribute Relationships window of the dimension), those member properties are no longer available in Excel. I get the error "The OLAP data source has no property fields available for this dimension" when I try to select "Show Properties in Report" or "Show Properties in Tooltips" in the Pivot Table. At the same time, member properties are available for all other dimensions. I have also not made any changes to the data source connection in Excel and in any event, there is no option in the data source connection to enable or disable member property visibility. I am using BIDS 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 (10.50.1600.1). Does anybody have an idea why this might be happening?

Create ID (uniqueid?) from two fields when data is entered


I need to create an ID from two fields when they are entered into the db for the first time.  I thought Uniqueidentifer would do this, but it looks like uniqueidentifier is random and i have no control of the process. 

My user will enter 4 letters into a column called INIT and 4 numbers into a column called NUMB.  What I would like to do is create an id by combining those fields.

How can I do this?

Cutting Edge: Custom Data Control Fields


In ASP. NET 2. 0, the GridView and DetailsView controls are designed to work together. They don't merely provide complementary services, they also share a number of helper classes and components. The output of the GridView control consists of a sequence of rows, each with a fixed number of columns.

Empty Website Data Source windown


Hi all,

I am Visual Web Developer user and facing a problem when I am creating a local report (.rdlc) file.

I am using Business objects as the Data Source for this report. It was working perfectly until all the items in the Website Data Source window suddenly "disappeared". The "Add New Data Source" button on this window is also disabled. Now the window is just like a blank box only. And I can't continue working with the report file like this...

I have tried undoing what I did before but it does not help at all...

Any reason for this to happen? There is no sign or something at least indicating what is wrong.

Please help.


 ps: found a similar thread in this forum but not solved

BDC as Source to the Infopath form



I have set up a bdc connection which retrieves info from HRIS. Now i need to populate a dropdown field in the Infopath form with the data collected from HRIS.

What are the ways a infopath form will know about the HRIS as well the Column that i need to bind?

Can a BDC connection be directly provided as a source in Infopath forms as we do for DataBase?
