Remarks

ASPxPivotGrid can use one of the following data providers to communicate with the Microsoft Analysis Services server.

  • OLE DB for OLAP

    Provides basic OLAP binding capabilities.

  • ADOMD.NET

    Offers certain performance gains when compared to OLE DB, and yet allows you to retrieve OLAP member format strings and properties from the server.

  • XMLA

    An open XML-based standard that does not require any data access libraries or data providers to be installed on the client system. Nevertheless, it supports all OLAP features available in OLE DB and ADOMD.NET.

The default data provider for ASPxPivotGrid is OLE DB.
