|TABLE 1: Steps in the Axis-Resolution Phase of Query Execution|
||This step parses the MDX query and turns it into an expression tree for easier interpretation in later execution steps.
||This step resolves metadata names. PivotTable Service determines whether to execute the query on the client or on the server. The next two steps occur only if the query executes on the client.
||This step performs final optimizations and any other preparation for query execution.
||This step determines the axes (i.e., rows and columns) of the query. If the query is running in isolation mode, then all cell values are prefetched and cached.
