Olap & Excel

Olap & Excel

I create a .cub that is linked to a .mdf database.
When I use the cube in the offline mode with microsoft excel everything's working well, but when I want to REFRESH the cube excel comes up with this message:

"the client protection options doesn't allow the execution of pass-through istruction on the data source".

I guess it's a protection setting in excel, anyway, how can I do to refresh the cube?
thank you!

RE: Olap & Excel

I think the security is set in the .mdf you should look that way!
