Process Update does not reflect change in case of dimension member in SSAS 2008.

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Process Update does not reflect change in case of dimension member in SSAS 2008. We can replicated this issue in Adventure Works 2008 with below steps.

 

1.  Customer Name Aaron Allen is in Title case both in Adventure Works SQL 2008 Data Mart as well as in SSAS 2008.

 

2.  Change Customer Name Aaron Allen to Upper case in Adventure Works SQL Data Mart.

"The member was not found when the string was parsed - SSAS 2008/PivotTable

  

Hello,

    I have defined an Additional Action to show me some detailed records when I'm using a PivotTable against an SSAS 2008 cube.  However, the problem is intermittent.  It seems to be complaining about a datetime field - yet this datetime field isn't even being requested as one of the drillthrough columns. 

    The full message is "Query (187,1319) The member '&[2010-07-30T15:31:44:263333] was not found in the cube when the string [Final Criminal Count Charge].[Load Datetime].[All].&[2010-07-30T15:31:44.263333], was parsed."

   Any assistance would be gratefully accepted!!

SSAS - performance penalty standard dimension without custom member formulas VS standard dimension w

  

Hi all

I was wondering if there is a big performance penalty if one introduces custom member formulas to a standard dimension.

SSAS - Use simultaneously unary operator and custom member formula in a PC (Parent-Child) dimension

  

Hi all

I was wondering (even this might a very bad idea from a logical and performance perspective) if it is possible to use unary operator and custom member formula simultaneously? Until now I have used unary operator but now some new calculation can't be expressed using unary operator. The idea is just to add the new members calculation to custom member formulas. Is it possible to make cohabitate both. If I had to switch all unary operators to customer member formulas what would be the equivalent expression for +, - , ~?

thanks for your answer

SSAS 2008 Dimension: Multiple FK Relationships to the same Dimension

  

Hiho,

I have kind of a fundamental design question: In my DWH are 2 tables TICKET and EMPLOYEE. EMPLOYEE is referenced by TICKET 2 times: TICKET_OWNER_ID and TICKET_ASSIGNED_TO_ID.

I have created a Ticket and a Employee dimesion in my SSAS Project. The Ticket Dimension should no have two atrributes: Owner and Assigned To. I can create the attributes by dragging the EMPLOYEE.NAME column from the DSV window into the attributes list but there is now to specify which relation will be used.

And of course I get pretty intresting results when I process the dimension.

I could create a named query in the DSV selecting * from EMPLOYEE and create a second Employee dimension but is that the only way I can get this to work ?

Thanks, ITD


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?

Thanks.


Regarding realtime update of SSAS cube when underlying data change

  

Hello All,

This is regarding the automatic update for SQL Server Analysis Service cube incremental update.

We have developed one cube which contains item details with several attributes.

And in our application, we have built search and to get result we are querying that cube. Now whenever new item is added or any of its details changed, we want to update the cube with changes.

I already know, that we can do it via scheduling cube processing at some small interval. But we want to have some real time optimal solution to update the cube.

If anyone has idea about any optimal method, please let me know. Its very urgent.

Thanks in advance.

SSAS 2008 - Dimension colmun/attribute not visible in cube browser?

  

Hi, I have one dimension and one fact table in SQL 2008 server...

i.e. DimEmployee (Columns : EmployeeID, FirstName, LastName, DateOfBirth, Addrss, PostCode, MobileNumber, Gender)
     FactEmployeePay ( Columns : EmployeeID, Amount)

When I create SSAS 2008 cube on those two tables (Relationship is EmployeID colmun) , deploy/process project/cube and then I go to "Cube Browser", but in dimension Employee table I can not see any columns other than EmployeeID. Why in this simple cube I can not view other dimension columns like FirstName, LastName,....

Any idea for SSAS 2008?

 


SSAS 2008 - Date Member Property gets converted from NULL to (Blank)

  

Hello everyone,

I have this cube with a dimension of investment deals.  The "Deal" member has a attribute named "Latest Acquisition Date" where this date can be null for some deals.  Once the cube is processed, the null dates always get converted to "(blank)" either in BIDS cube browser or in Excel.  This happens no matter what I do to the NullProcessing property of this date attribute.

Is there any way to have SSAS display [NULL] (as in nothing at all) instead of "(blank)" ?

how to sort date dimension in SSAS 2008?

  

Hi I have SSAS 2008 DimDate dimension.

At source DimDate table has:
DateID : 20100518 (primary key), 20100519, 20100520,... (and SortKey too at T-SQL level)
MonthName : April, May, June,....
MonthNameYear : April,2010  May,2010  June,2010

I would like to sort dimension by MonthNameYear's attributes (currently I have order like January 2001, January 2002, January 2003.... but I want order like January 2001, Feburary,2001,March,2001 .......)
In SSAS visual studio, in Date dimension structure >> Attributes panr>> Month Name Year (properties : OrderBy, I set to Key, Name, AttributeKey, AttributeName and deployed but no luck in sorting).

Any idea how to sort date dimesion attributes? Thanks.

SSAS Time Dimension (academic years, quarters) change over time

  

Apologies if I don't state teh question properly or am overlooking obvious answers - just started working with SSAS and barely beginner level.

I'm working on a cube to show student enrollments in different subject areas over time - for this purpose I'm only concerned about academic years and semesters.  In the underlying dimension table I have data like

KEY ACAD YEAR     TERM          DESCR
1 2006          SUMMER  SUMMER 2006
2 2006          FALL  FALL 2006
3 2006          SPRING  SPRING 2007 (note that spring 2007 is part of the 2006 academic year)
4 2007          SUMMER  SUMMER 2007
5 2007          FALL  FALL 2007
6 2007          SPRING  SPRING 2008
and so on

I've set up a simple hierarchy with only two levels - ACAD YEAR->DESCR

For the cube I have one measure: 'Enrollments' which shows the sum of students who have enrolled

What I'd like to be able to do is show the f
