Error importing a CUB file

Hi!

 

Until the April 2022 release, importing files in CUB format was working normally (local cube - SQL Server Analysis Services database). As of the May 2022 release, Power BI is able to read metadata but cannot import. It is a multidimensional cube, version 1100.

May you help me, please?

 

Thanks,

Ulisses.

Hi @Ulisses ,

 

power bi desktop has been updated to the September version, have you tried to update to the latest version to import files? Are there still problems?

Hi @Ulisses ,

 

Accorrding to your error message, you should first check if your datasource is accessible. Does it change? Or did you have any other operations on the data source?

Hi, @v-mengzhu-msft !

 

I tested with both accessible and also inaccessible datasource. My cube is totally offline.

 

To help with your tests, please download the cube below:

Try to import it in the April version. It will work. Then try to import in the following versions.

 

Thanks,

Ulisses.
