Refresh on Tabular Cube RRS feed

  • Question

  • Could someone help with this update issue, please?  For some reason, my Tabular Cube "connected via Excel" just won't have the latest data after myTabuCube is processed.

    I have deployed myTabuCube from BIDS to my tabular model.

    myTabuCube is based on data from one select statement from one table1 in SQL Server.  After the table1 is update, I successfully full process my myTabuCube using SSIS.  The Last Schema Update reflect the latest processing date/time.  But...  :)

    When I launch excel and connect to myTabuCube, it doesn't have the correct number of rows.  Opening BIDS doing Model|Process|Process All gets the latest data in myTabuCube.  But, this latest data doesn't get to the myTabuCube.  I've tried Deploying it, the Deploy was a success with the latest number of rows. Still, myTabuCube doesn't have the latest.

    Right click the myTabuCube and process full in SSMS doesn't update on my excel connection to it either.

    Changed processing from default to FULL in BIDS or SSMS doesn't correct it.

    script out the existing myTabuCube via SSMS, del the old myTabuCube, rename the myTabuCube name in script, confirm the sql select statement, in <QueryDefinition>, is correct and latest, create a  myNewTabuCube based on that.  process myNewTabuCube in full.  still doesn't update myNewTabuCube with correct records.

    I've checkout Cathy doc; but no resolutions. inhttp://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/685325/processing-ssas-in-tabular-mode-not-refreshing-data

    What am I missing?

  • The only solution I have which isn't practical... rebuild a new Tabu Solution and deploy it as a new Cube.

    I hope someone could point out what I am missing to get automatic refresh via BIDS and SSIS work.

  • Hi light_wt,

    We can use the Table Properties to determine when the data was last refreshed. Please refer to the steps below:

    1. In the model designer, select the table that contains the data for which you want to know the refresh date.
    2. Click on the Table menu, and then click Table Properties.
    3. In the Edit Table Properties dialog box, Last Refreshed shows the last date that the table was refreshed.
      Note: We can also check the process status of partitions.

    Please refer to the following article to manually process data:

    If the "Last processed" property show the latest date time but the data not updated, please install the latest Service Pack and CU for SQL Server 2012 to see if this help.
