7.0 Analysis Services Client and Local Cube Support

SQL Server 2000

This table shows support for new server features by the Microsoft® SQL Server™ 7.0 OLAP Services client components and in a SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services local cube. When a feature may cause data to be translated incorrectly by a 7.0 client application, the server prevents the cube from being visible and prevents the client connection to the cube. If the absence of a feature in a local cube might change data values presented to the user, then a local cube using the feature cannot be created.

For each feature listed here, the table shows whether a cube containing a feature is visible on a 7.0 client application and if the cube is visible whether the feature itself is available on the 7.0 client application. For each feature, the table also shows whether a local cube can be created using the feature and whether the feature itself is supported in a local cube.
