Author: Brian H. Madsen Date Posted: 12/2/2006 12:23:17 AM
After a bit of a break due to worldly circumstances we are back again.

This time we'll kick off with a topic which most likely are new to many of our members.

Nick Ward is gracing us with a visit and has taken up the gauntlet against SQL Server Analys Services. We'll be breaking ground with SSAS via Excel 2007 (for those of you who haven't caught the news yet then Microsoft Office 2007 has officially been RTM'ed and is available for those of us with a MSDN subscription.

This event also means we'll be breaking in our new venue (albeit a bit slower than the rest of the Perth UGs, but i'd like to think of it as better late than never) at Excom on Barracks Street.
