How to: Create an Analysis Services Project Using the Analysis Service Project Template

Creating a new project by using the Analysis Services Project template creates an empty project in which you define Analysis Services objects that you can then deploy to into a new Analysis Services database (or overwrite an existing Analysis Services database).
