Hi cdillon...

Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. It was actually a relatively simple solution (that I probably should have attempted before posting this question). I had to stop and start the OLAP service on the Analysis server. Thanks for sending the MS link though.

On Masrch 27/03 SpideyMod supposedly moved this to a PAQ and refunded my points. It won't allow me to accept anything as an answer to close. I get an error that the value must be at least 20 points. I thought this one was already closed.
