What is the best way to query with power bi on a SSAS cube database? Im am having trouble to load data, the following error keeps popping up:
A live connection is not an option unfortunately because i need to make some measures and calculated columns. So i need to import the data. I now used an MDX query (which i made with help of power pivot in Excel, im not an expert at this).
I hope someone has an solution for this or can point me in the right direction.
Looks like a setting on your SSAS server.
We use MDX against SSAS all the time and it works pretty well.
It looks like your query is using a lot of memory on the server - so much that SSAS has cancelled the query because it thinks it is about to run out of memory. How much data are you trying to import here? Are you trying to get the entire contents of the cube, including calculated values? You may be able to optimise the MDX query here (or use a DAX query instead), but it may also be the case that you can't get a large amount of data from the cube using a query.
The best option is probably going to be to add the calculations and dimensions you need on the cube itself so you can use a Live connection. If this is not possible you will have to try to reduce the amount of data you are importing, maybe by reducing the date range.
