Hi,

I've developed a CUBE. Users want to build their own calculation on the Excell file as they are doing the Pivoe table when they built using local data.

Please check attached screenshot which describe my requirment.
Thanks for any information about how to enable this.

Hi Keplan,

As far as I know this is not possible in standard Excel Pivots. You have to stick with the default aggregate options that are available.
Perhaps you should have a look at PowerPivot. This is an add-in available from Excel 2010 onwards. You could load the cube into the PowerPivot add it and use the formula options there to calculate custom formulas which can then be aggregated in a pivot.

Sorry Keplan, just realized I misread your post a bit. When I check my existing Pivots, this option is available using standard ODBC and OLE DB connections. I suspect it might have something to do with the fact you are querying a cube and that Excel might not be able to handle custom aggregates on a cube, but I don't know this for sure as I've never tried it.
PowerPivot still might help you out, we're keen to explore this option in our own company.

Hi Paul, i know! It's driving me nuts! Tried chrome, firefox, IE, all exhibit the same problem, but not consistently. Recently got a new laptop, and the problem persists. Same when on my home or my office network. Don't suppose you have any idea what might be up Paul?
