Excel freezes when filtering a pivot table

Excel freezes when filtering a pivot table

Excel freezes when filtering a pivot table

Using Excel 2000 connected to a SSAS 2005 cube.

I created a pivot table by selecting Menu...External Data...Get Data...OLAP Cube.

I can drag-and-drop the dimensions into a pivot table.  However, Excel freezes when I attempt to filter on any dimension by selecting the drop-down arrow to get dimension values.  The drop-down doesn't work and Excel stops responding.  Excel will respond after I leave Excel by selecting another application, then return to Excel.

This problem seems to have started recently.  The pivot table works normally on another PC.



RE: Excel freezes when filtering a pivot table

If it works OK on another machine I would suggest making sure the problem PC is fully updated and perhaps re-install the "OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services 9"
