Changes within the structure of an existing cube will be picked up dynamically. However if new generations or dimensions are added, or old ones deleted, the synonym process will need to be re-run.

I'm planning to attend your workshop........ However, my dilemma is a more immediate problem than the workshop in May. Can I trouble you with questions ? I have users asking about doing hierarchial reporting and I suggested we look into them purchasing the Essbase Adapter. The problem -- I talk them into spending the money from their department budgets and the Essbase Adapter not being able to satisfy their requirements.
