.cub File Extension

Developer: Microsoft Corporation
File type: Analysis Services Cube File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .cub. Files with the file extension .cub can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .cub files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .cub file?

Analysis Services is a built-in component of the Microsoft SQL Server software, and this applet uses files stored in the CUB format. Microsoft developed the CUB format as data files created and referenced by Analysis Services. These CUB files are appended with the .cub extension and are also called Analysis Services cube files. "Cubes" are pieces of data stored by Analysis Services into a CUB file, and these "cubes" are exported lines of data from sources used to store structured data. Data schema details associated to the content of a CUB file are also stored in the corresponding CUB file. OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) can be performed using the data in these CUB files. The PivotTable Service program is a component of the Microsoft SQL Server software, and it can be used to access the content of a CUB file. The Microsoft Excel spreadsheet application can also be used to open these CUB files for offline analysis, which means users of Microsoft Windows-based systems with Excel 2010 can open and save these CUB files as offline cubes.

how to open a .cub file?

Launch a .cub file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .cub file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cub files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cub file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cub file will open the correct application.

Microsoft SQL Server (2008)

Microsoft SQL Server (2008)

SQL Server 2008, formerly codenamed Katmai, was released on August 6, 2008 and goals to make data self organizing, management self-tuning, and self maintaining with the improvement of SQL Server Always On technologies, to give almost-zero downtime. SQL Server 2008 also includes support for structured and semi-structured data, as well as digital media formats for pictures, audio, video and other multimedia data. In present versions, such multimedia data can be saved as BLOBs (binary large objects), but they are generic bit streams. It also natively supports hierarchical data, and includes T-SQL constructs to directly deal with them, without using recursive queries. Basic awareness of multimedia data will permit specialized functions to be performed on them. According to Paul Flessner, senior Vice President, Server Applications, Microsoft Corp., SQL Server 2008 can be a data storage backend for different varieties of data: XML, email, time/calendar, file, document, spatial, etc as well as perform search, query, analysis, sharing, and synchronization across all data types.
Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office

Microsoft Office is an office suite of desktop applications, servers and services, released by Microsoft on August 1, 1989 for the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Originally, the first version of Microsoft Office contained Microsoft Word, a word processor and was previously considered the main program in Office; Microsoft Excel, a spreadsheet program that originally competed with the dominant Lotus 1-2-3; and Microsoft PowerPoint, a popular presentation program for Windows and Mac.; a marketing term for a bundled set of applications. As years passed by, Office applications have grown significantly closer with shared features such as a common spell checker, Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) data integration and Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications scripting language. Microsoft also positions Office as a development platform for line-of-business software under the Office Business Applications brand. The current versions are Office 2010 for Windows, released on June 15, 2010; and Office 2011 for Mac OS X, released October 26, 2010.The new Office 2013 (version 15 of the Office suite) is reported to be released around December 2012.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cub files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .cub. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
