Leif,

It is possible to get the SQL by editing the web config as follows:

Before:


<add name="Components" value="all,RunningJobs:3,SemanticQueryEngine:2,SemanticModelGenerator:2" />

To:


<add name="Components" value="all,RunningJobs:3,SemanticQueryEngine:4,SemanticModelGenerator:2" />

Of course you can always just use Profiler to see what is being sent over. It does sound like something wrong with the model definition more than the tool.

Hi Phil

I was able to rename the fields in the Report Builder.
When you create the Report Model, you can right click and rename the fields as per your choice and then deply the model.

I'd love to deploy this to my users save for one simple fact: I canot find any basic documentation on how to use it!

I've been tinkering with it and have run into very simple but yet annoying issues.

For instance, I've created my report model, deployed it, etc. The list of entities is displayed in the entity box. When I choose a field of one entity to add to the report, the other entities disappear.

The pain in the a$$ is that I have YET to figure out how to be able to view all the entities again!!

I don't think I was inferring that I couldn't rename the fields, I was just saying that the task was a big chore in building the model.

There are no tools/wizards to help you accomplish the task. If you have the same field in six tables you have to do it six times. Would be much better if it had a data dictionary, or refactoring like there is in Visual Studio 2005, and you only had to rename the field once.

Hope this helps
