SYMPTOMS

When you try to connect to Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services by using a Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) connection string that uses the CustomData property, the connection fails. You may receive the following error message:
Errors in the OLE DB provider. An error occurred while named instance information was being retrieved from the SQLBrowser service on the 'sdeb-dev-ness' server.
Additionally, when you try to use the MDX sample application that has the CustomData=<Value> setting appended to the ADO connection string, you may receive the following error message:
Unable to open connection. The CustomData element at line , column (namespace http://schemas.microsoft.com/analysisservices/2003/engine) cannot appear under Envelope/Body/Execute/Properties/PropertyList.
Note This problem may not occur when you use the ADOMD.NET data provider.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server uses an incorrect namespace value for the XML for Analysis (XMLA) property information.
