SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services, when you run the InitializeDesign method on a Decision Support Object (DSO) from a Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP) page, you may receive the following error message in the DSO processing log:
Cannot open Clipboard
Note You only receive this error message in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0, not in IIS 5.0.

For a list of previous hotfixes, see the "Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3 or Microsoft SQL Server 2000 post-Service Pack 3a hotfixes" section in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
290211 How to obtain the latest SQL Server 2000 service pack

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the InitializeDesign method includes the Clipboard.Clear function. In IIS 6.0, the clipboard is used to run ASP pages. Because the clipboard is being used by ASP, DSO cannot open it , and you receive the error message.
