BUG #: 13803 (Plato7x)
An attempt to writeback to a cell by changing the value in an ActiveX Data Objects (Multidimensional) (ADO MD) Cellset object fails, and if the cube contains one or more virtual dimensions you receive the following error:
The member name (All Store Size in SQFT in this example) varies, but it is the name of a member at the (All) level of a virtual dimension in the cube. The same writeback attempt is successful in Microsoft SQL Server OLAP Services 7.0 if you do not specify the virtual dimension in the original Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query that you use to populate the cellset.
Run-time error '-2147467259 (80004005)':
Unable to update cell because it contains a member, All Store Size in SQFT, that is not at the lowest level

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.
You only experience this problem when you perform a writeback operation at the leaf level of all real (not virtual) dimensions by using an ADO MD Cellset object modification. There are two frequently used methods that you can use to write back to leaf-level cells:
If the cube contains at least one virtual dimension, the first example fails as a result of the problem described in this article. The second example (UPDATE CUBE) is not affected by the problem described in this article and you can use this as a workaround for this problem.
