Accessing Microsoft Analysis services using ASP
Sample script how to access Microsoft Analysis Services through ASP.
Oh!! I wasn’t aware that ADOMD makes it so easy. Using ADOMD class Library, I have created a small asp script which can make a connection with the Microsoft Analysis services and run a MDX query. The APIs also allows catching an error i.e the error while attempting an invalid MDX can also be displayed.
To start with we need to prepare Analysis services instance for connection. What this means is the instance should allow access to IUSR_MACHINENAME. This can be achieved by adding a role in the catalog you wish to connect to. Secondly, you should know the connection string which should be used for connection to the instance.
