  • Varigence Vivid and Bonavista Dimensions

  • Gemini is now PowerPivot

  • Display the MDX query of an Excel 2007 PivotTable

    Often end users use Excel to navigate into the cube. Then they may ask you to produce a report using the same data. It would be useful to get the MDX query used by Excel. Moreover, Excel 2007 offers a good MDX quality of the produced query against Analysis Services 2005 (much better than Excel 2003). I don't know why Excel doesn't have such a ...
