SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) based application, you use Microsoft OLE DB for Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) to connect to an SSAS server.
  • You use a range rowset in the application to iterate through rows that are returned by running a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query on a cube.
In this scenario, you may notice that the rows that contain a Null value return error 0x80004005(E_FAIL).

For example, when you use the OLE DB sample application Rowset Viewer (RowsetViewer.exe) to run such an MDX query, you receive an error message resembles the following:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services 2005
---------------------------
Source: "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services 2005"

Interface: IID_ICommand Result: 0x80004005 = E_FAIL

IErrorInfo: [0xc10e0002] "Query (1, 15) Parser: The syntax for 'from' is incorrect." File:

F:\Depot\SQLVault\mdac28sdk\Samples\oledb\rowsetviewer\SDK\obj\i386\CSession.cpp Line: 235
---------------------------
OK
Note This problem does not occur when you query data from a cube in SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services.
