  1. Hi Mike,
    I had registered for your webinar today. But had technical problems and could not attend that. Will you be holding another webinar on cubes?
    If yes, I will be interested.

    Hello Mike ,
    I am having trouble with importing data from an Oracle database and i know the issue is a date field in the table. Some of the dates are actually dummy dates ie ex: 1/1/9999 but that is valid in the business the company is in . I cannot drop that field ,so can you suggest a work around. I have tried importing it into Access and it works fine , but when i refresh my Access DB , it blows up and wont refresh my power pivot any more . Please suggest what can be done .
