Chad has released his fourth video blog; this one called
Five Good Minutes – Cube Data, Power Pivot, Role Centers and Vacation
In it, Chad demystifies several scary terms: tables, queries, views, perspectives, cubes. (Well, ok, if “tables” scares you, then maybe you stumbled onto this blog by mistake.) He talks about how to connect to the cube data through Excel, then create a PowerPivot report with the cube data. He then completed the circle by saving the report into a role center. All in just a few minutes.
Chad’s accountant/CFO slip is definitely showing! But don’t let that intimidate you non-bean counters: it shows how easy it can be to vastly extend AX functionality!
Enjoy, and happy DAXing!
