I am working Excel and i want to use my OLAP Cubes in Excel. So i need to write my custom Oledb Provide for communication with My OLAP Server to Excel.
I come to know that there are some interface by implementing them i can built a bridge by which i can communicate with my olap cubes.
Can any one tell me how i can start to write my driver or any idea.
How i can communicate with external data source with Excel
An even faster approach is using the open source XMLA Connect. You can see a video of how it works here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m64VsOvvkw. If you find it useful, you can download the latest version from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xmlaconnect
You need to write an OLE DB for OLAP (ODBO)-to-Your OLAP Server bridge.
Does your OLAP server support XMLA?
This can be done in c or c++, but not sure about c#.
A faster alternative might be to look at Simba’s O2X Connector:
