Editing an AS2005 database ‘live’

Here’s an interesting bit of functionality I didn’t know existed in the BI Development Studio (following on from Mosha’s reply to my post on this interesting ng thread) – as well as making changes to an AS2005 database in VS in the default ‘project’ mode, where the changes you make are only propagated to the server when you click Deploy, you can also edit the database directly on the server by using ‘online’ mode and get a very similar experience to what you had with Analysis Manager in AS2K. To do this, instead of opening the project file in VS, go to File->Open->Analysis Services Database, type in your server name and select the server. Now when you make your changes they are implemented on the server when you click ‘Save’.
