Is it possible to access an Analysis Server with Excel via http?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 16, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
Hi, in our scenario we want to give another company access to out analysis server via web, their front end should be Excel. So first of all I made a setup like descriped here http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/cc917711(en-us).aspx (but I have really no idea how to test it in an easy way because using MDX sample application ends up every time in "The connection either timed out or was lost.") But apart of that, is it possible to access an analysis server with Excel via http? I did not found any possibility to use a http-adresse in Excel as server path. Any ideas? Thanks and regards Peter

Linked Server to access Excel 2007

  

Hi

I'm tried SELECT * INTO XXX FROM OPENROWSET alongwith Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0.

Apparently the query requires the sql account to have SYSADMIN privileges.

Considering that SYSADMIN should not be provided to a database account on a Production Server, I tried using the Linked Server method.

Following is my code.


Exec sp_addlinkedserver 'AB2','Ace 12.0','Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0','\\202.46.215.35\sagarr\Test1\cpc\c2\AB2.xlsx',NULL,'Excel 12.0;IMEX=1'
Exec sp_addlinkedsrvlogin 'AB2','false',NULL,NULL,NULL
go
SELECT * INTO [CPCAB2.xlsx] FROM OPENQUERY([AB2] ,'SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]')
Exec sp_dropserver 'AB2','droplogins'


Now i get the following error

Error.15247-User does not have permission to perform this action

My Excel file, Database and Windows Application run on separate machines.

i have provided the following privileges

GRANT ALTER ANY LOGIN TO sqlaccount
GRANT ALTER ANY LINKED SERVER TO sqlaccount


EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced options', 1
RECONFIGURE
EXEC sp_configure 'ad hoc distributed queries', 1
RECONFIGURE

SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services - Performance of Excel Pivot Tables

  
Hi, I've several cubes available for several users within my organization. I've the SQL Server 2005 and the Analysis Services running on the same machine but it has 30Gb of RAM, 8 processors and a quick enouth disk. The problems is that i've some automatic processes that "build" some excel reports and the users use pivot tables with olap connections to the cubes regularly. I've noticed that the excel "locks" when the user is drilling down the data and the server has only one processor (there are 8...) at 100%... Is there a way to make the analysis services use the maximum processing capacity that is available? The users are complaining about the slowness of the cubes... Thanks in advance Hugo

Trying to refresh an existing pivot table that is connected to Analysis Services Sql Server 2005 database.  My excel 2010  gets the eroor:\

XML for Analysis parser:  The restriction value provided by the consumer either does not match other restrictions or refers to an unknown object.

Advantage of Configuring HTTP Access to SQL Server 2008

"PivotTable.DisplayEmptyRows = false " in Excel pulling from Analysis Server 2008, doesn't work.

  

We display financial information, using Excel pulling from Analysis Server 2008.

 

In vba,  "ptTemp.DisplayEmptyRow = false" works fine for hiding empty rows of data on most pivot tables, but if the "account numbers" parent/child dimension is in the row fields, it doesn't.

 

The row Dimension look like this:

 

Balance Sheet

Assets

Current Assets

Cash

Total Balance Sheet

 

Income Statement

Gross Profit

Revenue

Item A

….

SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services & Excel 2003 Add-in

  
I've been working with SQL Server 2000 AS cubes and presenting them in pivot-tables in Excel 2003 with no problems.

I was recently looking at other BI tools I could use and stumbled across the Excel Add-In for Analysis Services, which adds a Cube Analysis menu to Excel and seems to have lots of functionality I could use.

But! It's no longer supported by Microsoft.

I managed to get a download of it from www.download.com and searched for help and I have some good documents to help me understand how to use it, but my problem is that it just doesn't work! I've uninstalled and reinstalled and rebooted, but to no avail.

I can connect to my data source and cube and I can view the dimensions and measures, but when I click apply on them and select the area of the report to put them into, they just don't appear. I can briefly see an EMBED command appear in the formula bar and then disappear, but nothing happens!

I've been through all the trouble-shooting and checked the settings of Excel as requested, but nothing works. 

Has anyone else had this problem or have any suggestions as to how to fix it?

Accessing Excel\Access files through Sql Server 2008 R2 Stand 64 BIT

  

Hello,

This has been just such a pain with 64 bit! Data Access!!  I have been unable to use linked servers from SQL server to access files because there is no Jet 64 bit. Now, I have been using bulk insert statements.  These are working ok, but for some uknown reason, for a certain .csv file I am getting unexpected end of line errors.  I have tried many things to no resolution..

How can I get linked servers to work with SQL Server 64 bit for excel and access?  Why would microsoft leave this out??

 

Thanks!


Cannot connect 2010 Access 2010 Excel or PowerPivot to Mobile SQL(SQL Server Compact) - SDF files

  
I've believe I've installed everything to read Mobile SQL .SDF files.  I've insalled Sql Server Management Studio, Sql Server 2008 R2, .NET 4.0 Framework and just about everything else I've read to see the contents of an .SDF file created for what I read directly from these product sources as this DotNet Compact Framework is the greatest new SQL stuff on the planet.  I can connect using the Management Studio and see the TABLE Stucture easy enough and I can query using some simple SQL Commands from the Management Studio but what really bugs me is if this is all so wonderful, how come I cannot connect to what the SQL Server 2008 R2 Server type "SQL Server Compact" Authentication: "SQL Server Compact Authentication in Office 2010 Access, Excel or even "WOW" PowerPivot!  I've run across a couple 3rd party .SDF Readers - one that exports to Excel such as flyhoward.com  I'm growing old with all the work around import export stuff and just want to use PowerPivot to  excersise the data......or should I use something that actually works like Tableau??

Hi,

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP

  

Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.
