Facing problems in OLAP Services

Facing problems in OLAP Services

Facing problems in OLAP Services

Hi there!

Let me describe the problem i am facing in detail.

TOOL : SQl Server 7.0 OLAP Services

Customers - Branches (One Branch can have more than one Customers)
Account Type
AMR Codes

MEASURES : Balance Amount

- I have 7 master tables (i.e: Year, Segments, Customers, Branches, Account Type, ARM Codes & Products).

- There is one fact table with following fields : Year, Segment Code, Customer Code,
            Branch Code, Account Type, ARM Code, Product Code, Balance Amount.

- I built 6 dimensions; 5 built directly on each one of the 5 master tables.
      The sixth dimension is Customers which has Branch and then customers (at one level lower than Branch).

- I then went on to create a cube that linked each of the dimensions to their respective fields in the fact table.

- After the cube was complete, i saved it and selected the VIEW and DATA options from the menu in the Cube editor (ie : <View> <Data>).

- This is where the PROBLEM started. When i see the measure value against any of the dimensions, i see the same Balance amounts for all the
members of the dimension i.e: If see a balance amount of 25000, i see 25000 against all the members of the selected dimension.
If i view the data with respect to another dimension, i see 145.67 for all the members of this selected dimension.

- I am sure that the data that is stored in SQl server 7 database is not being shown correctly from the cube.

- Please note that the cube is still unprocessed and when i selected the <View> <Data> option from the menu, it says 'Cube not processed! Showing sample data'
before showing me the data. Am i having this problem because i have not yet processed the cube yet?


- The reason i was talking about un-processed cube in the previous problem was that i was not able to process the
cube. Whenever i tried to process the cube, it tried to process the first dimension doing which, it would fail and come
up with an ERROR message that says
'ODBC error: Client unable to establish connection;08001;[DBNMPNTW]ConnectionOpen (CreateFile()).;01000; Time:5/27/00 9:17:00 AM'

- I am not sure why it is not able to connect to the SQl Server. My Data source uses login 'sa' and the password is correct.
I even pressed the 'Test Connection' button and it could connect successfully.

- Could you help?

Thanks a lot. I appreciate the time you took to read my problems. Could you please send me a reply on my e-mail address as well? Its
