FIX: You experience some problems when you perform a grouping members operation on an Excel pivot table whose data source is an SSAS 2005 cube or an SSAS 2008 cube

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ends on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005 after April 12, 2016, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
You have a Microsoft Office Excel pivot table on a computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server 2005. The pivot table data source is a SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS 2005) cube. When you perform a grouping members operation on this pivot table, you may experience one or more of the following problems:
  • Display folders that are defined for measures in the cube disappear from the field list of the pivot table.
  • Dimensions that are marked as Visible in the cube disappear from the field list of the pivot table.
  • Some dimensions and attributes that should be visible in the cube are not visible.
  • Dimensions that are marked as Hidden appear in the field list of the pivot table after the grouping operation is complete.
Note These problems also occur in SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services (SSAS 2008).
