Frustrating error #267: "Only one <configSections> element allowed per config file and if present must be the first child of the root <configuration> element."

I recently experienced this issue and struggled to find a solution. After reading through the many blogs and forums a Google search returned, I was fortunate enough to read the linked post which made the answer built into the error obvious. Move the <configSections> block to the top of the blocks inside of <configuration>. Just re-sharing the knowledge so the answer is more broadly known and findable.

ARGHHH!!!

Everyone has heard of the maxim, "Every bug fix is an opportunity to create a new bug." Unfortunately, this is even more true in MDX queries. It turns out that what I perceived as a bug previously wasn't one and my efforts to "fix" that bug made things worse in the long run. Details to follow...

Reformatted my blog

Just a quick note to document the day I finally figured out Blogger well enough to make my blog readable. Sorry for those who struggled with it previously. :-S
