SSAS Dimensions (Browser Tab Error)

Hi there,

I am getting the following error message when i try to click the "Browser" tab in dimension designer in SSAS project.

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services

Either the user, PCT-XSPT\AShah, does not have access to the PBCToolKit database, or the database does not exist.


The SQL Database is on a network Server and is 2005 and I have the dbo rights. The SSAS project is saved in a network drive.

Kind Regards

Hi Sorry me being silly actually i am very new to BI and it's components. I deployed the SSAS project to my local machine and created the cube after i deployed the database.
Now i am having other problems when i try to click the browse tab of the cube i get the following error message.

TITLE: Microsoft Visual Studio------------------------------

The cube cannot be browsed. Verify that the cube has been deployed and processed.

When i try to deploy the cube i get the following error messages:

Error      1      Internal error: The operation terminated unsuccessfully.

Error      2      Server: The operation has been cancelled.      

Error      3      The datasource , 'Extract Mart DW', contains an ImpersonationMode               that is not supported for processing operations.
Error      4      Errors in the high-level relational engine. A connection could not be made to the data source with the DataSourceID of 'Extract Mart DW', Name of 'Extract Mart DW'.

Error      5      Errors in the OLAP storage engine: An error occurred while the dimension, with the ID of 'Dim AE Tariff', Name of 'Dim AE Tariff' was being processed.
Error      6      Errors in the OLAP storage engine: An error occurred while the 'HRG Name' attribute of the 'Dim AE Tariff' dimension from the 'PBCToolKit' database was being processed.

Where ExtractMart DW is my source data and is on network server. The SSAS project is on my local Server and i am using the "Current User Credentials" in impersonate. I have tried using the default and the service account as well but both give different errors.

best regards

For development purposes i had to transfer the database to my local computer and had to set the impersonate to default and it worked fine.
