Hi Paul,
Impressed with your profile, just like to check with you regarding a contract opportunity in WA,

Hi Paul,

I was wondering if you know of a way to get rid of blank spaces/lines between two nested tables. Re-sizing the nested/child tablix within a main tablix to .06, the smallest value it can have, still leave about a line of space and a solid line between the records within the main tablix.

Thank you for your help. I wanted to buy your SSRS Recipes book, but it is out of print.

If you could put together a simple example and upload to a public file share (e.g. OneDrive, DropBox, etc.), I’d be happy to take a look. Just reply and send a link.

The recipes book is available in the Kindle edition which is what may people prefer now. Many publishers are moving to e-book only editions after the initial print book sales.

Use SQL Server management Studio to restore the backup to your Analysis Services instance.
After connecting to Analysis Services, right-click the Databases node and select Restore…, browse to the .ABF file and restore the database to the server. After that, it should show up as a database. The documentation can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms174874(v=sql.110).aspx
