    hey,
    I could always connect from my Excel 2007 to Analysis Server when I was using Windows XP SP2.
    A couple of weeks ago, I installed Vista Ultimate on my portable, all went well but since then I get twice following message:
    "Initialization of the data source failed. Please contact your ..."
    after connection to the server is made and I have chosen the cube to access.
    The cube is fully accessible from other PCs in the network.
    i searched the Internet, found quite some messages about this but all related to earlier versions of excel and never mentioning Vista.
    Thanks for any help,
    Geert

    Are you using the 'Run as Administrator' in Vista?
    I have seen few problem if you are not using in this case, even though the login is a local admin sometimes you have mention to use Admin login [:)].
