1. NEW: OLAP and Datawarehouse Technologie in IBExpert:

Here is a short description how to use it (a more
complete description is currently in work and can
be found in the next days in our Documentation on )

-Connect IBExpert to the Employee Example Database
-Run the following SQL Statement "select * from sales"
-On the Result Page press on the Data Analysis Toolbutton
-From left field lists choose Cust_No and Drag´n Drop it
in the Dimensions
-choose Sales_Rep and Drag´n Drop it in the Dimensions
-choose Ship_Date and Drag´n Drop it in the Dimensions,
but change "Alias Name" and "Display Name" to Ship_Date_Year
and change "Wrap To" to Year
-choose Ship_Date and Drag´n Drop it in the Dimensions,
but change "Alias Name" and "Display Name" to Ship_Date_Month
and change "Wrap To" to Month
-choose Total_Value and Drag´n Drop it in the Measures.
-Press on "Build Cube" Toolbutton (or F9)
-Now you can Drag´n Drop all Dimensions to the Columns Area
on the Top or in the Rows Area on the left.

To see what else is possible, you can have a look at or wait for the entries in
