Subj:   Use of Date Datatype for SQL Server 2005 Analysis
 
From:   Okell, Alan

We are producing a Proof of Concept ROLAP implementation for a Business Analytical Application using Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services. The inability to filter on a Teradata Date datatype is obviously a known issue but I was wondering what experiences other sites have had with the suggested workarounds:

- Create a view in Teradata and Cast Date column to Timestamp(6). Modify Analysis Services project to use View

- Use Business Intelligence Development Studio to add a Named Calculation

- Create / Use Surrogate Keys, Filter on Surrogate Key and displaying the actual date value (ie date_id, date_desc)


For now, dates in the Fact table are in Integer format.
