Finance cube - what to do with period journals

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
Hi there,
I apologise for the rather convoluted long explanation, please bear with me.

I have started to develop my first cube that displays information about construction jobs. It will display financial data based on transactions that show cost of goods and sales invoices (this is the grain).
Each transaction is assigned a general Ledger code: materials are one GL code, labour is another etc.  The transactions are against jobs. Each job has its own Job Reference number and each job can have several transactions against it.

There is a Period dimension that organises data into months (2010012, 2011001 etc).  Each month, the finance dept manually add to the system, two specific journal entries for each job (these are GL codes that correspond to Cost of Sales (COS) and Turnover.  It's best if I leave some of the details out about these not to complicate things.

Here's where I'd like to ask advice.... The two journal entries - COS and turnover - that are applied to each month for each jobs show the full expenditure, turnover for each job so they’re already aggregated for each job.  I believe these two codes values are semi-additive!? The value£ of these type of GL codes can't be summed like the values of the other GL codes.  For instance, if I wanted to see the total for each GL code for each proj

Timeout error - The timeout period elapsed prior to completion

Hi, I'm using ASP.NET 3.5 (c#) with SQL Server 2008 server. Recently, I started getting error "Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.". After looking at forums for solutions, I added the below common code to my application. protected DbCommand CreateCommand() { SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(); sqlCommand.CommandTimeout = 600; // 10 minutes return sqlCommand; } However, intermittently, I'm still getting the timeout error. I added the logging to see where error is occuring. And found that before executing one of the query, it is giving this error. Now, my assumption is that I should have received this error after runnign query for 600 seconds (10 minutes) since I set it in the above function. But the timeout error is occuring instantaneously within 1 second itself. In the log, I printed one line above & after the query to identify how much time it would take. Surprisingly, the log says that 9:00 AM "Before query execution" & at 9:01 AM "timeout expired...." I would really appreciate if some one can help me out here! Thanks!

AdomdDataAdapter.Fill returns memory error when querying an SSAS Cube(2008)

For certain SQL's I will get the following error when calling the Fill method on an AdomdDataAdapter object. "Memory error: While attempting to store a string, a string was found that was larger than the page size selected. The operation cannot be completed."   Snippet of Code: DataSet ds1 = new DataSet(); AdomdCommand acmd1 = cn1.CreateCommand(); acmd1.CommandText = "SELECT ..."; AdomdDataAdapter ad1 = new AdomdDataAdapter(acmd1); ad1.Fill(ds1);   Now when we run this query in Ms Sql Studio we don't get any errors but the query returns 1 row with over 40,000 columns. I'm guessing the # of columns might be an issue but not sure.   When doing a Google search it appears that this problem was found in the 2005 and fixed in that version. Have any of you come across this problem?  

SSAS Cube & Pivot table

Hello, I am connecting to my SSAS cube through excel Pivot table. I have the following questions: 1) I have a filter for Company. However, instead of selecting multiple companies from a drop down list, I would like to have a range e.g. Company between 100 and 200. We have this "Filter expression and operator" option in SSAS but I dont see in excel. 2) I have 90 users who will be using my cube via pivot tables. How do I automatically have the data in excel refresh automatically such that when the user comes in, in the morning and open the pivot table, they have the refreshed data. Instead of them manually refresh it as it runs the query for a long time. Thanks in advance for all your help and suggestions! KJ

Process cube - other cubes get processed

When I process a single cube other cubes are getting done as well. Am I right in assuming that is because they share dimensions ?
