BIDSHelper version Released

The BIDSHelper team have just released an early Christmas present.

I have just uploaded the install for the version release of BIDSHelper to As you can probably guess from the numbering, this is not a major release, it contains a couple of bug fixes and a little bit of performance tuning.

In particular:

  • An issue with multiple BIDSHelper buttons appearing in the calculations tab of the cube designer has been fixed.
  • An issue where the configuration/expression highlighter component failed to work has been addressed.
  • A slight performance optimization has been added to the expression/configuration highlighter.

Merry Christmas.

Hi Darren,

Today I am updating the MDX formulas and KPIs in my production SSAS2005 project.

I was able to update the MDX formulas very easy.

Any idea if the KPIs can be updated like you do with the MDX formulas in future release of BIDSHelper ?

Unfortunately it is not possible to only deploy KPIs like you can with the MDX Script. You have to deploy the whole cube. It's a restriction of the underlying XMLA that I can't work around.
