When you use the Microsoft Decision Support Objects (DSO) library in a custom program to create cubes in Analysis Services, the FromClause property for a partition in a cube may stop inheriting its values from the cube.

The following error message is seen when processing the cube in Analysis Manager:
A table prefix was used in the select statement and not supplied in the where clause.
This problem occurs when changes are made to the FromClause property of a cube after the cube and its partitions have been saved to the repository using the DSO Update method.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (the Analysis Services Components - Sql2kasp1.exe). For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
290211 INF: How to Obtain the Latest SQL Server 2000 Service Pack


To avoid this problem, make sure that all necessary changes to the FromClause property of the cube are made prior to issuing a call to the Update method of the cube or server objects.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services version 8.0. This problem was first corrected in the Analysis Services Components of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1.
