Personalization Extensions and Attribute / Dimension visibility


Does anyone know if it is possible to hide / show Dimensions, Measure groups, or Attributes via MDX?  I am using personalization extensions (which is awesome) to create "things" on the fly keeping them separate for each client who uses our cubes.  But now we are entering the realm of "we don't want to see that, as it doesn't apply to us" [they came into the picture after so much was already built].  It would be great if I could use some MDX to hide entire things at a pop, and it is already built in.

Does anyone know if this is possible?  Or would I have to use XMLA to accomplish this?  Or would it be better to use the .Net classes (as they provide a safety layer between my code and future changes)?

Thank you in advance,

Time Dimension Enhancement with Business intelligence Issue

Hi all, I want to add a year over year growth using the BI wizard (Time diemsion enhancement) but when I try to add this enhancement via the wizard then this last one has the button next disabled with a waning that says   A time dimension is required to enable this functionality. Ensure that you have a dimension of type Time, that contains at least one hierarchy with a level flagged as a time period. Inspite of the fact that I added that time dimsension with one hierarchy Time hierarchy Calendar Year Calendar Semester Calendar Quarter Time Key(With namecolumn defined as a named calculation that repsents the day with this format  yyyy, dd mm ) Me personaly I have a doubt about the last condition of the warning (with a level flagged as a time period) but I dont know exactly 1. If my doubt is right 2. What shoud I do to enhance the cube in this context using the time dimension enhancement The complexity resides in the simplicity

display non measure, non dimension fields in drill down

Hi All, I created my fact table with more fields than just the foreign keys linking dimensions and the field(s) to be used as mesures.  I did this hoping that on drill down I would be able to see the extra fields so that the user would have access to detail information on the records making up the measure amount.  The extra fields do not appear on drill down.  How can I make them appear, or am I on the wrong track? Thanks for any help

Dynamic Dimension with Aggregate Values

Hi, I have an specific requirement to make the measure value as an dimension. Let me explain my problem in brief. I have a fact table with dimensions like Time, Products etc and having single fact table with two measures. I have to create a calculated measure which shows the average of Measure 1 (here used calculated measure because there are couple of other calculations involved). And other two calculated measures. when I drill down with Products dimension for Calculate measure 1, it shows the average value for each products. Now, I want this calculated measure values (includes Product dimesnion drill down) as a Dimension and based on this value, I need to show the value of other two measures. For example: when the dimension products is used for drill down the values displayed will be like this and in this I need CM1 to be another dimension Products CM1 CM2 CM3 P1 0.10% 20 1 P2 0.20% 40 2 P3 0.30% 80 3 P4 0.40% 70 4 P5 0.50% 30 5 P6 0.60% 110 6 P7 0.70% 120 7 P8 0.80% 130 8 P9 0.90% 86 9 P10 1.00% 65 10 when CM1 is used as a dimension it should show the value like this CM1 CM2 CM3 0.10% 20 1 0.20% 40 2 0.30% 80 3 0.40% 70 4 0.50% 30 5 0.60% 110 6 0.70% 120 7 0.80% 130 8 0.90% 86 9 1.00% 65 10 How can we create the dynamic dimension with the aggregated values? Any assistance will be greatly apprec

Create a dimension based on 2 fields

Hello I have a table as follow: No   Placestart    Placeend 1      DK                USA 2      UK                USA 3      USA              DK Now, I want a dimension called Country, which selects either of the rows where a value exist In SQL it would be ex (SELECT * FROM table WHERE placestart = 'USA' OR placeend = 'USA) So, when I select USA in the dimension all 3 rows are listed, as USA is included either in placestart or placeend. If I select DK row 1 and 3 is selected etc... Is this somehow possible?      

Relationship between a dimension - two fact tables

I have 3 fact tables and about 10 dimensions. I want to relate both "Fact_Pop1" and "Fact_pop2" to Dim_AgeGroup. But Fact_pop1 has single age group and Fact_pop2 has no single age group (5 years age group). I spent about a day on this but I could't solve it.   Fact_Pop1 Age        Race_key            Gender_key      Geography_key              Pop_size 10           White                    M                                            CA                          10000    10           White                    F        

Other group with VisualTotals and dynamic dimension

I All, I’m trying to create a query that dynamically display a dimension attribute on rows. I want display only first N member of that dimension attribute and aggregate the others in ‘Others’ member   (this query should be used in Reportig services and data displayed in both Crosstab and Pie Chart). So I’ve 2 parameters:   @TopN: Value: 5 @RowDimension:  Value: [Product].[Subcategory]   And the code look like this:   WITH SET [DynamicDimension] as strtoSet(@RowDimension + '.MEMBERS') MEMBER [Measures].[RowCaption] as strtoMember(@RowDimension).MEMBER_CAPTION   SET [TopItem] as TopCount(DynamicDimension,@TopN,[Measures].[Order Count]) SET [BottomItem] as {[DynamicDimension]} - {[TopItem]}   MEMBER [Product].[Subcategory].[Other ] as aggregate(BottomItem)   SELECT {[Measures].[Order Count]} ON COLUMNS , Non Empty {      [TopItem] ,[Product].[Subcategory].[Other]     } ON ROWS FROM [Adventure Works]   Unfortunately this solution doesn’t work when I change the value of parameter @RowDimension (ex with [Customer].[Customer Name]). This is because calculated member “ [Product].[Subcategory].[Other]” is related to Product dimension and is not possible parametrize the name of a member. Any suggestions?   The alternative solution that I&r

MDX Query - Get (Parent-Child) Dimension member regarding another Parent-Child Dimension, then, get

Hi there, I got the following MDX issue. My cube structure looks like that : DIMENSION CATEGORY (Parent-Child) --> (Many to many) FCTLESS_CategoryNode <-- DIMENSION NODE (Parent-Child) ___ DIMENSION NODE (Parent-Child) --> (Many to many) FCTLESS_NodeVariable <-- DIMENSION VARIABLE ___ DIMENSION VARIABLE <-- FACT (Supposed with only one value called VALUE) I'd like aggregate for N nodes linked to a specific category. For example, with the next content : DIMENSION CATEGORY - COUNTRY - SITE - BUILDING DIMENSION NODE US (Category Country)     - Site US_A (Category Site)     - Building US_A_A  (Category Building) FR (Category Country)     - Site FR_A (Category Site)     - Building FR_A_A  (Category Building)                                       - Site FR_A (Category Site)     - Building FR_A_B  (Category Building)                                       - Site FR_B (Category Site) 

MDX problem (Amount value is getiing doubled when multiselecting dimension parameters)

Hello...I need some help with the MDX...basically the problem is the Amount value is getting doubled when I am selecting more than one parameter. Here is situation...suppose I select a parameter  lets say A from dimension Account Element Hierarchy then I get the Budget Amount as $100, now in my SSRS report I change the dimension parameter value to B and then I get the Budget Amount $200. Now I multiselect A and B and ideally I should get the Total Budget Amount as $100+$200=$300 but in place of that I get $600 I have captured the mdx below...Please let me know if you have an idea to fix this --The below MDX returns $100 for Budget Value SELECT   NON EMPTY { [Measures].[Budget Amt], [Measures].[Budget / RSF] } ON COLUMNS, NON   EMPTY { (DESCENDANTS([Account Hierarchy].[Account Hierarchy].[Level 02].ALLMEMBERS) ) } DIMENSION   PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION, MEMBER_UNIQUE_NAME, PARENT_UNIQUE_NAME, LEVEL_NUMBER ON   ROWS FROM [Finance]   WHERE (STRTOSET("{[Account Element Hierarchy].[Account Element Hierarchy].&[1214|425|406|495|1209|421]}"),   STRTOMEMBER("[Date].[Year].&[2010]"),   STRTOMEMBER("[Budget Version].[Budget Version].&[Budget]"), [Account Hierarchy].[Account Hierarchy Type].&[2])   CELL PROPERTIES VALUE, BACK_COLOR, FORE_COLOR,   FORMATTED

Two many to many dimension => How to calculate correct facts????

Hey guys,   I got a problem and I hope someone could help me with it.  I have the following scenario which I need to solve. The Schema looks something lilke that...   DIM3 DIM3_Key Dim3_Att   FactlessFact_DIM3_DIM4 DIM3_Key DIM4_Key WeightingFactor   DIM4 DIM4_Key Dim4_Att     FACT DIM1_Key DIM3_Key Sales_Fact   DIM1 DIM1_Key Dim1_Att   FactlessFact_DIM1_DIM2 DIM1_Key DIM2_Key WeightingFactor     DIM2 DIM2_Key Dim2_Att   As you can see my Facttable is connected to two dimension which are actually many to many. Also there is a 'WeightingFactor' in every FactlessFact table (BRIDGE), so that i am able to correct (as defined by the factors) values when ever I query DIM2_Att or DIM4_ATT.   So the Problem I have is that I every Fact shoud be MULTIPLIED with the WEIGHTING FACTOR. Well in MSAS 2008 I can do that with an Measured expression but since a measure needs to be unique I cannot just use 'WeightingFactor'. So When I renamed it to WeightingFactor34 and WeightingFactor12. But this only gives me the correct values for the defined Path. In case I use  WeightingFactor12 i only get the correct values for DIM2_ATT but not for DIM4_ATT.   I guess I need to solve this with a calculated Measure???? Am I right? I am new to MSAS and also new with MDX and all this stuff... How can use a calculated meas

SSAS C# Amomd Dimension Data

Hi, i have the following problem. I'm able to connect to the cube, get the Meassure Names, Dimension Names and Dimension Attribute Names. But how can i get the Dimension Attribute Data (MEMBERS) in a List or Array. I mean how can i acces the data of an Dimension Attribute like in MDX: Dimension -> Attribute -> Attribute Data [Dim Customer].[First Name].&[Frank] I would be great to get/recive all Data an put them in a Table(List/Array/DataTable/...). Thx for your time and your help

Parent-Child relationship on a Type 2 (SCD) Dimension

For a Type 2 slowly changing dimension (SCD) such as Employee with a Parent-Child relationship, how do you handle the explosion of new rows when a high ranking employee has an attribute change?   It will require terminating the high ranking employee row and adding a new current row with a new surrogate key. Then every employee row below this employee will also have to be terminated and a new current row added with the new surrogate key of the parent.   This will have to be performed 1 level at a time so the subordinate rows will have the new surrogate key of their immediate parent.   For a large organization such as 20,000 employees, this will result in a dimension with hundreds of thousands rows in a relatively short time.   Is there a better way to model this?
