    pivotcache fun (Excel 2003)

    Aloha all,
    I have this Excel pivot table that gets its data from an OLAP cube built by SQL Server 2005's Analysis Services. I am considering writing some code to grab and summarize the cube data (using pivotcache and pivot table methods or functions, I'm supposing) without having to manipulate a pivot table on a worksheet. I may go as far as to craft a reporting tool in Excel that can bridge the gap between cube and end user. At the very least, a macro is a quick way to get a result from the cube that I can manipulate further in Excel.

    Can any esteemed contributor suggest good resources/examples/tutorials for pivotcache-related code?

    And if there is a better forum for such a question, please let me know?

    Mahalo,
    John Jacobson

    AFAIK, you cannot get at the data in a PivotCache object directly. You have to create a PivotTable on a worksheet and manipulate that.
