Excel pivot table report filter selections from a cube

There are two filters added to the report filter, Date (8/31/2010) and Product (Product A), from a cube I have.  Everything works just fine.  Once the cube is refreshed each day to include the new data, for some reason, only the selection of Date, 8/31/2010, stays but the selection of Product changes to All Products.  Both dimensions are fully processed but the surrogate keys for existing records do not change.  I checked the MDX captured in Profiler and in the where clause, the date selection is passed from the pivot table but the product selection is lost and all products is passed in.  Any thoughts? TIA. 

Report exported to Excel 2007 is EXTREMELY slow once a filter is applied.


I am exporting a 12,000 row, 20 column report to Excel from SSRS 2008.  Once opened in Excel, everything is fine.  If I further filter the data through Excel (no external data connections) performance degrades.  If I filter down to say 20 rows, it nearly completely bogs down my entire PC.  I've emailed this spreadsheet to several others, who then experience the same issue.

If I export this same set of data from a different BI tool, such as Microstrategy, there are no performance issues what so ever.

Filter Excel Report based on MDX Filter


Hello guys!

Im in trouble when trying to use a MDX Filter to filter an excel report.


I created an excel report and in the pivot table I added a filter based on one Attribute, and set that to me a parameter. I published it at the site document library.
Now with sharepoint designer i create an MDX filter that uses an SSAS Assembly that i created to return the Member Key Set(EX: [Seller].[ID].&[5]). The filter do work right alone, like when i create one dashboard and add two web parts, one for the mdx filter and other to the report. Both of them works nice alone but the excel parameter field dont get the value of the filter.

Example of dashboard:

| ID <5>(here it shows the value requested by the mdx)   | Filter Web Part
|  ID  | All  |                                                                  |

VS2008 BIDS Report export to Excel not grouping the same as VS2005

I have a report that I created in VS2005 BIDS and got it to export to Excel to group/subtotal the same way it does in the BIDS report window.  Now I have copied the .rdl files to a VS2008 project, open it in VS2008 BIDS, made NO changes to the report format and the exported Excel file is combining what should be the 2nd and 3rd groups into 1 group.  In the BIDS window, the grouping is working correctly.  Does anyone have any ideas what has changed between 2005 & 2008 that may cause this problem?  Thanks in advance.

Excel 2007 Pivot table OLAP- SSAS 2008 Error

Hi, I do have a strange issue with Excel 2007 pivot table report; the data source is SSAS 2008 cube. When refresh the excel 2007 report data using the 'Refresh All' or 'Refresh' button available under the Data menu, the below error is thrown. "The expression contains a function that cannot operate on a set with more than 4,294,967,296 tuples." After some analysis, the report works well on the below workaround, 1. Remove all the calculated measures from report (3 measures in this scenario) 2. Remove one row label (dimension attribute) from report But the measures, attributes are valid one from cube and it is required fields in the report. So, understand that removing few items is not at all a solution. The below workaround also works. 1. Check the 'Defer Layout Update' option from the Pivot Table Field List window. 2. Click on the Update button After that Unchecked the 'Defer Layout Update' option and apply the filter, etc in the report. The report works very well. But every time, we need to use the above work around after open the excel report. I have NO clue on this issue. Please help to resolve this issue. Thanks, Jey

Report fine; PDF export fine; Excel export crashes - ArgumentOutOfRangeException

I use the Report Viewer Redistributable 2005 Service Pack 1 (version 8.0.50727.1843). On my ASP.NET page the report displays fine, in a ReportViewer control, using an rdlc file.

Excel 2003 pivot table - parent showing grand total than the sum of its children

All, In Excel 2003, I have a product hierarchy, for simplistic sake lets say it goes A > B > C > model nbr.  I have filtered on model nbr 1.  I have the product hierarchy in my pivot table and unit cnt as the measure. Starting at level A in the hierarchy I am showing a total unit of 12000, if I drill down to B it still shows 12000, if I drill down to C it shows 100 and if I drill down to model nbr it shows me model nbr 1 with a unit cnt of 100. So my question is why are my parents not filtering the model nbr, it is taking the total for ALL records that have level A as their parent regardless of the model nbr? This does NOT happen in Excel 2007 or when I browse my cube in SSAS.

How to change connection string of a pivot table pointing to SSAS 2005 cube using excel 2003?

Hi All,I am not sure if I should have posted this query to Excel 2003 forum. But posting it here as it applies to SSAS 2005 as well.Ok, let me give the background before I tell the actual problem.We have users on ABC domain and the SSAS server is also on ABC domain. Users on this domain can acess the excel pivots by connecting to cube to browse the data. They leave the Userid & password field blank while they setup the connection string and it works fine. Thanks to windows authentication that takes the credentials of user logged in. Let's say I have two users A and B, they login to ABC domain with their own windows ids.  Now when user A creates a excel file having a cube pivot and then sends this file to user B, user B can refresh and modify the same excel file (he can select new measures to pivot, new hierarchies in filters and so on).Now, let's say I have another user, user C. He has excel 2003 installed on his PC and cannot migrate to excel 2007. He is on different domain XYZ but have a valid windows userid on domain ABC. The domain ABC & XYZ can not be setup to have trusted relationship. Now, when user A sends the same excel file to user C. When user C opens the file and try to refresh it or try to modify the pivot by selecting/deselecting any elements, he gets below error prompt:" An error was encountered in the transport layer." and "Errors in the

Trouble importing strange column format report from Excel 2007 to SQL 08

Hi, I'm not sure whether this belongs in this section or the SSIS one so hopefully I've got it right!  Hoping someone will be able to help with a problem I'm having importing a report with header and detail rows from our antiquated POS system into SQL 2008 tables.  The reports export in Excel 2007 format and for each header row there can be one or more detail rows starting from column B.  As such I've tried several things such as openrowset, an Access 12.0 OLE DB source in SSIS and even COM automation of Excel to try and write a conditional split which will hold the header details in variables then write them to rows alongside the detail rows.  I've pasted a small sample of the data here as I wasn't able to attach it: 01/07/2010 @ 11:18 Page: 1 RECEIVING: Voucher Journal Sort: VC|Str|Vou Date|Vou #|Document SID Filter: Voucher Date: 01/06/2010@12:00a..30/06/2010@11:59p Include Item detail: DCS|Item#|Desc1|Attr|Material|Size|Qty VC Str Vou Date Vou # Qty ABC 001 15/06/2010 12345 38 E NN 66 200148 XXXXXXXX RED SHAD E NN 66 200149 YYYYYYYYY BLACK GO E PP 60 200154 ZZZZZZZZZ BLACK CDE 002 16/06/2010 13839 8 F SA 35 217500 XXXXXXXX Natural F SA FL 218674 YYYYYYYYY Chalk F SA WE 221462 ZZZZZZZZZ White FGH 001 21/06/2010 13905 3 F SH 85 126260 XXXXXXXX Navy IJK 001 23/06/2010 13914 3 E AA 61 250005 YYYYYY
