I am trying to retreive OLAP data from a Cube (Test1) in SQL Server Reporting Services.

I have created a shared Data Source:

Provider=MSOLAP.2;Client Cache Size=25;Data Source=DEV08;Auto Synch Period=10000;Initial Catalog=BAMAnalysis

I have a Data Set as follows:
Command Type: TableDirect
Query: Test1 (the name of the Cube)

When I run the query the cube dimension data is returned but none of the measure data. Does anyone know why? How can I retrieve the measure data from the Cube?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have Essbase? What query are you using to extract data into the cube?

The query is simply the name of the cube--nothing else?

Essbase? What does that have to do with SQL/Reporting services?

Quite right - I didn't see "Reporting Services"
Essbase is a 3rd party product often used with SQL Server/Sybase particularly for dense multidimentional financial (cube-friendly) data. With something like AlphaBlox as front-end, drag&drop reporting is possible on terrabytes of related data. It is however a distinct entity and requires daily extracts from SQL Server to populate its cubes.

I know what it is--I just didn't see where it applied to this question...

Hi,

I was hoping that I could keep it simple without using an MDX query but it appears not.
