Part of my testing with the beta version 2.0 includes trying it out with Excel 2013.


The above shows how Analysis 2.0 Beta looks with Office 2013 using a simple BEx query.


The Insert feature, new with Analysis 2.0, is still available with Office 2013.  Does the insert row/column work with hierarchies?  See below:


Results are below:


So yes, the insert works with hierarchies.


I also tried the interoperability with Design Studio by simply clicking the Create Web App ribbon.


This was successful too.

More to come.
