How to: Delete a Data Source View in Solution Explorer

Updated: 14 April 2006

Use Business Intelligence Development Studio to delete data source views in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) projects and databases.

  1. In Business Intelligence Development Studio, open the project or connect to the database from which you want to delete a data source view.

  2. In Solution Explorer, expand the Data Source Views folder.

  3. Open the Delete Objects dialog box by doing one of the following:

    • Right-click the data source view you wish to delete, and then click Delete.
    • Click the data source view you wish to delete and press DELETE.
To delete multiple data source views, select all of the data source views you want to delete and press Delete, or right-click one of the data source views and then click Delete.

The Delete Objects dialog box appears. If you are deleting a data source view from an Analysis Services project and there are objects that are defined based on the data source view being deleted, then the objects that will be invalidated are listed in the Delete Objects dialog box.
