Figure 13: The Cube Configuration page (web-based access to Project Server) allows you to customize OLAP cubes for your Project Server Instance.

Figure 14: OLAP cubes generated by Project Server 2007 (using Web-based access) can be accessed by other tools, such as Excel 2007.

The Data Analysis feature of Project Server 2007 makes use of Microsoft Office Web Components, which is a collection of Microsoft ActiveX components. Project Server 2007 uses these components to access OLAP cube data that is in the Analysis Services database. Users can interact with this data in PWA (Project Web Access) and Project Professional 2007 by using fully interactive PivotTables and PivotChart reports.
