If you have tried to query a tabular model using DAX, you will soon realise that it is not an easy undertaking. Why is it hard? Well, for one, SSMS isn't currently much of a friend for tabular models. When you connect to a tabular instance with SSMS the model is displayed in a multidimensional format. The only tabular meta-data which you can easily derive are some table names (dimension names), some field names based on attribute hierarchies and the names of measures (without context for the table that they are built in). This post looks at DAX Studio which is an Excel 2010 Addin available on CodePlex. It is designed for DAX and tabular models. When released, the installer can be down loaded from here.
