Working with OLAP Cubes in SAS Enterprise Guide

SAS Enterprise Guide and OLAP

OLAP cubes can be viewed in SAS Enterprise Guide with a new and improved OLAP Analyzer.


The OLAP viewer in SAS Enterprise Guide supports OLAP cubes from SAS®9 and MDDBs from SAS 8.2.

Neither OLAP Cubes or MDDBs can be created in SAS Enterprise Guide 3.

Cubes can be built using SAS OLAP Cube Studio or SAS ETL Studio.
