I have Cubeview which takes ~50 secs to refresh in OS.
When I insert same Cubeview in excel and refresh in excel (OS Excel-Addin); it takes over 2 mins.
It is simple insert and refresh i.e. I do not have anything additional like VBA code etc in Excel.
Thank you Bob. Great suggestion for troubleshooting. I tired and indeed the refresh time reduces to 1 mins 20 secs (down from 2 mins 20 secs). One step closer...I believe next step is to diagnose what is slowing in excel addin.
I have a smilar issue. Changing these settings does not reduce the time to refresh the workbook. Also if I populate lots of cells (ca. > 100) in the CV in Excel it takes very long that the cells get yellow (indicating that data is not in DB). When I hit submitt Excel crashes. So I think the Addin is not made for massdata submission or lager CubeViews.
