Report Builder support for Analysis Services
I’ve been meaning to blog about the quality of support for Analysis Services in Report Builder for some time now, but to be honest the thought of doing so depressed me – I prefer to blog about functionality that I like and works well (even though, looking at my usage stats it’s the negative posts on this blog that get the most attention). However Pablo Mugica has just brought to my attention the following KB article which details the ‘known issues that may occur’ when you try to use Report Builder with AS:
So, no support for parent/child attributes, ordering of members or KPIs amongst other things. And it doesn’t even mention the bizarre (although it makes sense for relational data sources) method of selection/navigation and the rules on where you can put attributes and measures on a report that I still haven’t worked out. Hohum. I hope they make more of an effort for the next version.
