Online tutorials on building reports in Analysis Services 2005?

Hi folks,
I'm using Excel 2007 CUBE Functions to build a data model. However, a number of reports I'm trying to analyse are too big for the mighty Excel 12!

So, I'd like to build it in Analysis Services so I can see my errors and fix it in Excel 12.

Though I can write SQL, I'd like to use the Analysis Services query designer as it's similar to pivot tables in Excel 2007.

Do you know of any tutorials I can use? I'm not talking about a quick Google search - I'd rather have tutorials that you've actually used and experienced, so I can hit the ground running!

Hi Vikram,
Already had a look at those too - after a Google search. Can't trun through the tutorials as I'm in an office.
Thanks for the effort, but are there any others you've actually used?
