While executing i got an error as below,

Msg 7403, Level 16, State 1, Line 1

Select * from openrowset('MSDASQL','Driver={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls)};

Users use Excel-Pivot table to query the cube, how to capture those queries?


Most of our users use Excel'10 for querying the cube,

I've set up the querylog-properties in SSAS engine but it only captures the query from SSAS engine and not from the other platform such as Excel. So, when I use Usage based aggregation wizard, it shows the users/ueries from SSAS engine only. Is there any way to capture the user/query information that comes through Excel pivot table and somehow create aggregation through that information?


Any suggestion/help is very much appreciated,
