aggregated numbers do not match between sql 2005 cube and sql 2008 cube
Posted on 2015-02-12
I took a backup of the relational database from sql 2005 and restored it to sql 2008 r2.
Now I created a cube on sql 2008 r2 and created same measures and dimensions as they were on the cube on sql 2005.
When I browse the two cubes using the same dimension and measures, I get different numbers on the two cubes.
When I run a sql query to calculate sum on a fact table on both databases, the results match perfectly and they match to the results on sql2005 cube, but sql 2008 R2 cube numbers are way low.
There are no calculations set for this measure on any of the cubes.
I have checked on both cubes. The source, AggregateFunction, DataType, FormatString etc are the same for the measure on bot cubes.
What else can be causing this difference in numbers? What do I need to check?
