Alternatives for accessing relational data:
In Web Analysis Studio, you can create a relational database connection to be used by spreadsheets, charts, and pinboards.
You can use freeform grids, which leverage custom document database connections, to combine data values from multiple data sources in one data object.
In Web Analysis Studio, you can create a relational drill-through connection from an OLAP database connection to a relational data source.
You use the Related Content dialog box to leverage pre-defined Analytic Integration Services drill-through reports.
