Enhance SSAS so that a calculation returns multiple cells at once (Excel fill not a single cell but

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I wonder if somebody can help me with the following question. I would like to create an enhancement to SSAS in a way so that one can pass in multiple values, run a calculation and in return retrieves not one but multiple cell results at the same time e.g. retSet = functionABC(inSET) where inSet is somthing like 5 4 3 6 7 3 4 4 AND retSet is 4 6 7 8 9 3 4 4 All my calculated members in MDX return a single value BUT I need to have a calculation that if called returns multiple results (a set) at once and in a way so that Excel will properly pick up on it and consequently fills multiple cells in the Pivot table. Is that possible at all and if so how? I would not mind to write a little CLR assembly to enhance the SSAS but don't know how to pass the results back. Any ideas are highly appreciated. Dirk

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?

Passing Data to a Cell in Excel



I have a webpage that is created in Visual Studio 2008 and programmed in C#.

I have a web form that prompts the user to enter a value into a text box.  For now, I do not have any validation on that field (I will be adding that later).

I need to pass the value that the user has entered to cell C1 of the excel spreadsheet (user_info.xls).

I understand that using excel is not ideal, but unforutnately need to try to make this work with the excel spreadsheet.

I do not have any code for this yet, because I honestly do not know how to begin.

The action of poulating the excel spreadsheet will be intialized from the On Click event of a Submit button.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,

Multiple domains in single asp.net mvc application




I want to use my asp.net mvc application with multiple domains (maybe of hundreds),

so I have created custom Route class that matches requests including domain.

Each domain could has different routes, so the number of routes in RouteTable can be huge

(eg 500 domains, each 20 routes = 10000 routes in RouteTable).

I am considering how it will be efficient?


I have an idea to replace RouteTable.Routes (of type RouteCollection)

with custom one (of type Dictionary<string, RouteCollection>).

But how I can override default route matching mechanism with my custom mechanism which will be two step:

1) retrieve RouteCollection from dictionary based on domain name

2) retrieve specyfic Route object (standard route matching mechanism)

How can I do this?


Maybe someone has better idea for solving this problem?


Thanks in advance
