Ok. I got a question guys. thanks in advance for looking! I have a request to be able to replicate formulas with SQL 2005. I know this was doable in sql 2000 (seehttp://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa203746(office.11).aspx) but will that work with 2005? and if not, is there any other way around? exposed in CLR maybe? I see that it is available out of the box with Analysis but we dont want to have to build cubes just for this. any suggestions???
