Can't connect to AS2005 from Excel 2000

All replies

  • Hi! If I am not wrong Office 2000 was released in late 1999 and was the first Excel release that had a limited support for cubes in OLAP Services(SQL Server 7).


    Have you any seen any official (MS) documentation that SSAS2005 is supported in Excel 2000?

  • It's hard to find any official statements whether it's supported or not. There have been some threads in this forum that says it's possible, this one for instance:

    I've also seen other people (on the web) saying that they've managed to make the connecion.

  • Is there anyone here who can tell if AS 2005 is offically supported by Excel 2000 or not?

  • Hi again!


    If you do not find any official MS information regarding regarding support for SSAS2005 in Excel 2000 it is my guess that this combination do not work.


    Excel 2003 have some limited support but between that release and Excel 2000 you also had Excel XP.


    SSAS2005 do not support Excel 2003 web components except for the special version in the BIDS cube browser.


    This is the information I have heard of.
