DAX Studio 2.7.2 Released

The lastest update for DAX Studio is now live at http://daxstudio.org

This release includes a number of small enhancements and fixes including the following:

  • Enhancement: Allowing "Unlimited" Dataset sizes from PowerPivot – previously results were buffered through an internal memory structure that had a 2Gb limit which resulted in most typical queries failing at around the 2 million row mark. We've now implemented a new streaming interface which removes this limit and have run tests exporting over 6 million records and creating a 6Gb csv file.
  • Fix: Default Separators so that the option run queries with non-US separators is used correctly when set in the Options screen
  • Fix: Tracing Query Plans for PowerPivot
  • Fix: Setting Focus to the Find box after typing Ctrl-F
  • Fix: "Linked Excel" output when connected to an Analysis Services Multi-Dimensional cube so that it always includes Cube=[CubeName] in the connection string
  • Fix: Crash in "Define and Expand Measure" when run against a Power BI model with a measure with the same name as one of the column names

In addition to the above specific issues that have been fixed numerous stability enhancements have been added as a result of crash reports that have been logged. Thanks to those of you that have submitted these reports when the program crashes, specially those of you that have taken the extra time to note down some extra information about what you were doing when the crash occurred. With some of the crash reports it's easy to figure out what happened from the stack trace and screen shot, but in other cases it's quite difficult. We have also seen some reports that appear to be from .Net faults or issues in some of the third party libraries that we are using.
