    Hi folks,
    I'm connecting to Essbase 7 using Tableau 5.1.4 but I'm getting "Essbase database error 1260046: Unknown Member MEMNOR used in query". This error is listed in the release notes but I can't find any solutions or workaround. Please Help.

    The Kentucky Derby graph looks more like a sine-wave. A 2nd or 3rd order regression might be more illuminating.

    Boy oh boy, someone's bias is showing! Just because the Huff-and-I'll-Puff Post asserts that oil money causes pro-oil voting doesn't mean your headline has to agree! After all, the assumed cause & effect relationship remains to be proven: the more believable connection is that the Repubs are pro-energy and therefore merit campaign money from the energy firms! Or do you think that if suddenly that oil money went to Dems, that those blue bars would lengthen (perhaps like Pinocchio's nose)? Haha!

    I'd be curious to see these speeds graphed against an indicator of track conditions and/or weather conditions. Is it wetter in recent decades leading to slower speeds?
