The dimension '[Current Date]' was not found in the cube when the string, [Current Date], was parsed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a large cube with multiple Order, Invoices, Quote and goal information that I process everyday.   On the average, I get the following error about once a week.   Once the error occurs, I resubmit the processing and the cube completes successfully but it puts me hours behind schedule. 

    MdxScript(Sales Customer Performance) (4330, 5) The dimension '[Current Date]' was not found in the cube when the string, [Current Date], was parsed.

    and Current date is defined as

        TAIL( FILTER( [Transaction Date].[Transaction Date Hierarchy].[US Working Date].Members, NOT ISEMPTY( ( [Transaction Date].[US Working Date].CurrentMember, Measures.[Gross Sales $] ) ) ), 1 ).Item(0);

  • Hi Werner,

    Thanks for your question.

    Could you please post the detail log information when you process your cube? We can collect the log files via the following path:
    <Drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSAS10.<InstanceID>\OLAP\Log\

    - OR -

    <Drive>:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSAS10_50.PowerPivot\OLAP\Log\

    You can also try to use SQL Server Profiler to capture the events for analyzing. Please see:
