Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A connection string.


A sample connection string is shown below:

OlapConnectionString=”Provider=msolap;Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=Adventure Works DW;Cube Name=Adventure Works;Query Timeout=100;”

The connection string has the following parameters:

  • Provider - Identifies a data provider to be used. The “msolap” string identifies the latest version of Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS);


    Note that the Provider parameter is in effect only for the OLE DB provider for Analysis Services specified using the ASPxPivotGrid.OLAPDataProvider property.

  • Data Source - Specifies the name of a server that runs an instance of SSAS;
  • Initial Catalog - Specifies a data catalog that contains cubes;
  • Cube Name - Specifies the name of a cube that provides OLAP data;
  • Query Timeout (optional) - The maximum amount of time, in seconds, to wait for a query to SSAS to complete. If the parameter is set to 0, each query can last for an indefinite time.


In order to enable a pivot grid’s ability to bind to OLAP data sources, the @ Page directive of a web page containing the pivot grid should include the AspCompat attribute, set to true.
