    Unanswered: Enforcing Rule: Client Side or Server Side?

    Hi,

    In Analysis Services there is an option to enforce a role either on the client side or the server side.

    Can someone kindly guide what's the recommended approach and what's really the difference between the two options.

    Thanks.

    Server side rules prevent the server from accepting bad data. Client side rules prevent the client from even generating the bad data.

    If there is any chance of a user connecting with a different client (such as Excel), you really need server side rules to protect the data. Client side rule give the user better feedback (more immediate, and usually more detailed).
