    Default Question Interface between Pentaho and Excel's?

    Hello everyone. I am new to Pentaho and I have the following question: Is there currently an interface between Pentaho and Excel's?. Similar to what makes Oracle Essbase. An add ins or the like to work directly with Excel?


    Thanks!

    No, the most you get is that we produce excel files. For some time, there was a mondrian connector, so that you could access MDX results from within Excel, but that used a proprietory connector and never took off.

    Given that our provider was based on Simba's XMLA connector, you can try theirs and see whether it works for you.

    However, if you are searching for a free or opensource solution, then you wont have much luck, I guess.

    Thank you very much for clearing that up.
