No data fields are available in the OLAP cube

i was able to access data in Excel yesterday, but now all the cubes that i have created cannot be accessed by Excel any more and after authenticating and selecting the cell for the pivot table i get this error:

No data fields are available in the OLAP cube

i just hope this is some process in HANA that needs restarting and not some endemic MDX problem. if so, where do i look?

has anyone seen this?

BTW, shouldn't there be a single log on for the connection? i have to enter credentials twice: 1 when creating the connection and 2 when opening the pivot table.

    Hi Greg

    Easy answer first: you have to enter your password twice for security reasons, but in your step 1 (when creating the connection), you can choose to save the password with the connection, so you won't have to enter it again.

    Regarding your question about "no data fields..." - can you share some more details on how you connect to HANA from Excel? Is it a direct connection to an analytical or calculation view using the ODBO drivers? Or do you have a SBOP Universe in between?

    If you are connecting to HANA views directly, what do you get when doing a data preview from HANA Studio?
