Quick question, can you explore your cube from excel. I also use Cube (MD) and never had an issue. Wondering if there is anything on cube side.

Yes - cube works perfect from XLS and XlCubed also.


Its a cube processed by a CPM tool Tagetik - i dont know why its now accessable form here.

Hi BornSylvest. We are looking for a way to connect to Tagetik from Power BI and I found this (old) thread. Hopefully you can point me the right path.

Of course I can connect Power BI to the Tagetik SQL database. But to avoid having to build all table relations, we prever to connect to the MDX cube. (How) can that be done? It doesn's matter if it's an Import or an Direct Query. Can we connect to the Tagetik cube and what are the things we have to take into account (if there are any)?

Thanks in advance.
