Common Questions Around Excel 2007 OLAP PivotTables
Today's author: Allan Folting, a program manager who works on the Excel team.
I have gotten lots of questions from customers around specific functionality in Microsoft Excel 2007 PivotTables that is missing when connected to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services Service Pack 2 cubes:
- Filtering individual calculated members
- Showing non-visual totals when filtering
I have also gotten lots of requests for the ability to add calculations to OLAP PivotTables using the object model, specifically:
- Adding calculated members/measures
- Adding named sets
Today I'll discuss these topics and outline current ways and workarounds to address this.
