MS Query hangs when a user creates an OLAP cube and attempts to save a local cube (.cub) file with the same name as an existing cube file.


This happens only when the user is trying to overwrite the cube file in the same session, that is, without closing and re-opening MS Query.


The user can work around this problem by saving to a new local cube file.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server OLAP Services version 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 1 for Microsoft SQL Server OLAP Services version 7.0. For information about how to download and install the latest SQL Server OLAP Services Service Pack, see the following Microsoft Web site:
