I´m an Analysis Server Admin. I opened the SQL Server Management Studio and connected to Analysis Server Database. Then I opened a role and add a new member. The new member opened Excel and connected himself to the Analysis Server Database. If he load the Cube the warning "DimensionPermission (1, 1) The EqualTo-Function expect a string or a numeric expression for the 1-argument. A level expression was used." appeared. All other users in this role can refresh the data in the pivot table without the warning. Do anyone have an idea how I can fix the problem?

    DimensionPermission (1, 1) The EqualTo-Function expect a string or a numeric expression for the 1-argument. A level expression was used.

    From the warning description, I am guessing there is some dimension security set for this user. You need to check the dimension level security expression for this user. Try to find somewhere in a equal expression , see if level function was implemented.
