Question:
Can an Excel 2007 PivotTable connected to an SSAS 2005 SP2 cube expand a dimension to show facts in a single column? (see Scenario B, below for an example)
i.e.
Project Expenditure (all time)                  
Scenario A - this is achieveable:                  
      Hardware      Software      Services
ProjectX      125,000      75,000      100,000
ProjectY      100,000      50,000      100,000
ProjectZ      150,000      100,000      150,000
Grand Total      375,000      225,000      350,000      
                  
Scenario B - is this layout achieveable:?            
      USD            
- ProjectX      300,000            
   Hardware      125,000            
   Software      75,000            
   Services      100,000            
+ ProjectY      250,000            
+ ProjectZ      400,000            

If it is possible, what needs to be done in SSAS 2005 SP2 and/or Excel 2007 to achieve the desired result?

Create a pivot in Excel with the Project as the row field, and Project Expenditure as your data field. Leave the column field empty, this will just display a single column wth total Expenditure.

You can now drag the Expense Category field (or whatever it is called - the field containing Hardware/Software/Services) to the right of the existing Project row in the pivot.

It will then show you the expenditure for each category for each project.

You could also create a hierarchy within the cube, however as this is a many to many relationship it is not advisable.
