SSAS 2012 Cube Browser Doesn’t Support Earlier Browsing Features

I faced a lot of problems when I designed and tried browsing a cube developed using SSAS 2012. I was not able to see the custom format string for measures, context menu for Actions were not appearing as it used to be in earlier versions, the pivot feature is not working, etc. Of course, It’s annoying for developers.

The SSAS 2012 has removed many data browsing features from the cube browser window saying we need to use Excel 2013’s, probably Excel 2012 as well, Pivot feature in order to view all that. When I tried using Excel 2013 using a small icon that appears in the toolbar of Cube Browser window, almost all features worked fine. So, we are forced by the Microsoft to browse the cube like.

I wish SSAS 2012 would have retained the features in cube browser, adding same features into Excel as well. Though, I’m yet to test other tools, which are used to browse SSAS cubes in order to check what works and what doesn’t. Will update soon!
