BUG #: 11287 (plato7x)
After you install Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.6, and you try to copy and paste an OLAP object from OLAP Manager or use the Cube/Dimension Editor to add a new object, you may receive the following error message:
Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another.
Because the SQL Server driver that ships with MDAC 2.6 is more restrictive, this error occurs when objects are saved and read from the repository. This only occurs if the OLAP repository is migrated to SQL Server.
To work around this problem, you can roll back to an earlier version of MDAC. For more information about the Rollback feature, see the "Frequently asked questions about the installation of Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC)" article on the following Microsoft Web site:
