The fix also applies to Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Analysis Services (SSAS 2014).


Consider the following scenario:

  • You process data in a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services (SSAS 2012) or SQL Server 2014 Analysis Services (SSAS 2014) tabular model that contains some calculated columns.

  • A calculated column depends on another calculated column indirectly through a dependency path that contains a relationship.

  • You perform a ProcessRecalc operation after a ProcessData operation on the tabular model.

In this scenario, the calculated column cannot be processed, and you may receive the following error messages:

The expression referenced column '<ColumnName>' which does not hold any data because it needs to be recalculated or refreshed.

The query referenced calculated column '<ColumnName>' which does not hold any data because evaluation of one of the rows caused an error.

Note The columns that are referenced in the error message are calculated columns.
