If a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services has a cube where real-time updates are enabled and an Analysis Services (Msmdsrv.exe) build between 8.00.0874 and 8.00.0918 is installed on the computer, Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) queries against the real-time cube may not reflect updates that are made to the relational table that serves as the source for the real-time data.
