How do I get rid of the automaticly showing measure in the excel/powerpivot pivottable fieldlist?

"Values"
___Count of Models

My customer doesn't want it there.

Edit: Oh, forgot to mention, it's 2012/Denali CTP3.

Very easy. Glad you asked.

Step 1: Right Click the .BIM file and select View Code
Step 2: Ctrl+F to find __Count of Model
Step 3: Comment the entire Command block that defines this measure
Step 4: Save the change made
Step 5: Now open the .BIM file again --> Build -->Deploy

Note: This is a default measure auto created having value as 1

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask anything you wish.

I saw that it is fixed now in RC0. Great!

https://connect.microsoft.com/SQLServer/feedback/details/712481/-count-of-model-in-tabular-model#tabs

Though my "old" models, created in CTP3 doesn't get "cured" just by being edited in SSDT CTP4 or by being deployed to a RC0 instance - it still needs your fix to hide the "___Count of Models"-measuregroup in the excelsheet. How do I comment a row in XML? /**/ or -- or something else?

Yes I had riased the issue in MS Connect.
Follow the steps as above and the default measure will not pop up in Excel or SSMS

again, search of <Command> in .BIM code file --> comment the <Command> XML node that defines [__Count of Models] and deploy the solution again.

I tried like this, but it still shows. Maybe excel has some similar default "connector" for this default measure on that side?

<!--
<Command>
<Text>CALCULATE;
CREATE MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.Measures.[__Count of Models] AS 1;
ALTER CUBE CURRENTCUBE UPDATE DIMENSION Measures, Default_Member = [__Count of Models]; </Text>
</Command>
-->

Correct...now save the .BIM file
Next close this file
Now open the solution explorer and double clink on Model.BIM file (or your .BIM) file
Build and deploy your project
Observe the change

Did follow your directives exactly. Next time I doubleclick .bim file it opens correctly. I build and deploy, but now I cannot use the analyze in excel function, it says some security issue has occurred and the data connection is disabled. If I create a new excel sheet, data connection, AS Server, I now have my self-created meaures listed, but still also has the ___Count of Models.

I close the solution edit the .bim file back as it were, save, open in ssdt, build, deploy, and it has reverted to same old - same old, ie analyze-in-excel is working again, still showing ___Count of Models.

Ok...let's do it once again

Comment the block-->Save the file in XML edit mode-->Make sure you have atleast one calculated measure defined in the tabular project(else the project will not open in excel)-->now double click the model.bim file-->build and deploy

If you have followed exactly the steps, the measure will not appear in excel and in ssms

Tried it once more and sorry, that doesn't work in my project. Doesn't really matter though. I'm going RC0 with it. Rebuilding the project, model and everything from scratch.

Thank you for your support, but I'll leave it with that.
