Dear all
I created my Cube using SQL Server 2012.
I want to create my dashboard using Excel 2013.
The idea is I have two pivot tables that I want to link together.
How can I do that?
Later I will create my chart on this new pivot table that contains both Pivot tables.

Thanks,

VLOOKUP(B4,A120:B128,2,FALSE)

and this was the result = there was a problem creating the calculation exception from result = 0x800A03EC.

Hi there,

What version of Excel are you running? If you have ProPlus or Professional Plus you can get Power Pivot and use that. In any case you'll need to relate the data somehow. It sounds like you have a single data source but two distinct PivotTables from that one source? Your best bet would be to have this field already in your cube. If you used Power Pivot you would create a measure for this (or, as an alternative, a calculated column). Although without knowing more there's little we can do to help you. Do you have a sample file you could attach? Or describe, in detail, what it is you're trying to achieve?

Regards,
Zack Barresse

i use Excel 2013.

the idea is that i want to make a relation between the tables.

the 2 tables are pivot tables and are from the same CUBE.

if you see the first table you will find column named: "vlookup" i want to replace this column with the value: 4572010 because the Month of the first table = Month of the second table.

please let me know if you need more calcification.

thanks,

Assuming you have Power Pivot, load the PivotTable data caches into the data model (i.e. Power Pivot), relate the tables, bring in the other field as desired. If you don't have Power Pivot then you'll either need to join the data prior to returning from SQL Server to get your values that way, or you'll need code to dynamically clear/enter formulas to retrieve data.

So what version of Office do you have? Is it ProPlus, Professional Plus, or standalone Excel? If not, do you have access to one of those versions? It can be built by one of those versions and consumed by all versions of Excel [2013].
