  • Hi Tom,

    The issue may occur if Analysis Services lacks necessary permissions. Here, I suggest that you create new data connection in the Visual Studio project to be utilized for Excel data mining, and run the wizard for the Excel Data Mining Plugin to configure Analysis Services permissions.
