I have renamed a cube database in SQL Server management studio from Excel1 to Excel2 and Excel2 to Excel1. If I am trying to retrieve the data through Excel, do I need to establish a new connection or is it OK if I just refresh the existing the connection?

If I understand correctly...

If the databases structure the same (identical), so it'll be ok but you just flipped the databases, so whatever was reading from EXCEL2 before, now will read EXCEL2 the renamed of excel 1.

The thing is like, in Excel1 , I missed to include 1 year during partitioning and processed it. People were using it for testing. Later I realised that I missed 1 year in partitioning and created a new project Analysis Services project 2 and processed it and renamed it to Excel1 and renamed the old Excel1 to Excel2. But, in my Excel sheet data connections can I now use the Excel1 existing connections ?

That's happens, anyway I don't see a problem if it's identical, try and see how SSAS will say !

In a best word you'd create everything again with the correct names as a final step, that's why there's Dev, QA, Staging and Prod environments.
