ODBC connection to SSAS

ODBC connection to SSAS

ODBC connection to SSAS

Hallo together,
I want to send an MDX query over ODBC or OLEDB to Analysis Services 2008. Is this possible.

To the normal database engine I can connect via ODBC and send SQL queries. But there are no command like 'use CubeName;' and it is not possible to send MDX via this connection, right?

Thanks for any help,


RE: ODBC connection to SSAS

I've only used the .Net ADOMD library to make a manual connection to SSAS 2008.

For OLEDB, look here under the OLEDB samples, try it out, and let us know how it worked out for you.



RE: ODBC connection to SSAS

Thanks for your answer. Until now it doesn't help me. Because the fact is I want to connect to SSAS from PROLOG and there I haven't got the possibility to use such connections strings, but to connect directly to an odbc connection.

But I will check this in the PROLOG forum.

Thank you so far.
