Following fact table
- Amount
- StartDate
- EndDate
- SomeOtherDate
If the user selects a date in the time dimension I want to build the sum of Amount where the selected date is between StartDate and EndDate.
Like this
SELECT SUM(Amount) WHERE <date> between StartDate and EndDate
Is it possible to create a calculated measure like this.
Thanks.

Hi
Was looking to create a calculated Measure Which needs to be dependent on another column of the FACT table.
I need to have the Average of the particular Measure based on the fact that this particular 'set' has a common Related dimension's
The example would give a better picture.
I have a set of dimensions like
STUDENT, TEACHER, COURSE etc as my dimensions and the
grades, class standing based on marks for the subject, percentage of marks scored, Percentile, Marks Scored,StudentID and the related PK's etc are the measures on my fact table
Here I want the Avg of the marks scored by the Students based on the grade say is A or B or C
I was looking to create a calculated measure by using MDX
which was a follows
(NOT THE CORRECT SYNTAX JUST THE IDEA)
SUM (MARKS SCORED)/COUNT(DISTINCT StudentID)
WHERE GRADE = A
As this would be measured against a particular subject or a teacher or a Course.
I was hoping if I could get help in putting this in a proper SYNATAX
Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I have to dimensions: [Currency] with members CAD and USD and [Convet to] with members None, CAD, USD. The measures involved in calculation are [Amount Billed] and [Amount Received]
The problem calculation is defined pretty simple:
MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.[Measures].[AR] AS (abs([Measures].[Amount Billed] - [Measures].[Amount Received])>0.1,[Measures].[Amount Billed] - [Measures].[Amount Received] ,null);
and worked perfect without currency conversion .
I've read some info about currency conversion and designed this calculation to convert:
scope (leaves([Time 2]));
scope([Convert To].[Convert To].&[USD],[Currency].[Currency].&[CAD]);
[Measures].[Amount Received] = ([Measures].[Amount Received],[Convert To].[Convert To].&[None])/validmeasure([Measures].[Cdrate]);
[Measures].[Amount Billed] = ([Measures].[Amount Billed],[Convert To].[Convert To].&[None])/validmeasure([Measures].[Cdrate]);
End Scope;
scope([Convert To].[Convert To].&[CAD],[Currency].[Currency].&[USD]);
[Measures].[Amount Received] = ([Measures].[Amount Received],[Convert To].[Convert To].&[None])*validmeasure([Measures].[Cdrate]);
[Measures].[Amount Billed] = ([Measures].[Amount Billed],[Convert To].[Convert To].&[None])*validmeasure([Measures].[Cdrate]);
End Scope;
End Scope;
That calculation provides correct results for both [Amount Billed] and [Amount

Hi,
My goal is to change the text color of all cells that contain aggregated values.
Currently I achieve it like this:
I COUNT the members of all attributes of all dimensions.
To be multi-select-safe I am using the EXISTING keyword.
If the members count of at least one dimension is not 1 than the background color of the cell is changed.
CREATE
MEMBER
CURRENTCUBE .[Measures].[SingleCellSelected]
AS iif ((COUNT (Existing ([Dim1].[Attr1].[ Attr1].MEMBERS ))=1)
AND (COUNT (Existing ([Dim1].[Attr2].[Attr2].MEMBERS ))=1)
AND (COUNT (Existing ([Dim2].[Attr3].[Attr3].MEMBERS ))=1)
AND (COUNT (Existing ([Dim2].[Attr4].[Attr4].MEMBERS ))=1)
AND (COUNT (Existing ([Dim3].[Attr5].[Attr5].MEMBERS ))=1),1,0),
VISIBLE
= 0
;
SCOPE
([Measures].AllMembers );
FORE_COLOR
(this ) =
iif ([Measures].[SingleCellSelected]=1,0,16744448);
END
SCOPE ;
This approach works but it performs badly with attributes with many members.
Do you have any idea how to optimize this?
Thank you!

I have a 64bit server running SSAS 2010 and I keep getting an ExcelMDX error when processing my cube. We do use an Excel function called FINV() in a calculated measure. I installed Excel 2007 on the SSAS 2010 server but this did not help
(I also tried Excel 2010). I can start Excel on the server so I know it is installed. Does it matter whether I install Excel 32bit or 64bit on the server? How do I verify that Excel is installed correctly for SSAS 2010?

Hello:
I have a Measure Group that has two Date dimensions, a Reporting Date and a Fee Paid Date. The Reporting Date and the Fee date is based on the same Dimension, which has a standard YQMD hierarchy. It's very typical.
The calculation is called "Fees Paid In Same Period", and it would display the Fees paid if the Reporting Month equals the Fees Paid Month.
How do i do this?
Thanks,

I have a cube with a Measure (A) and a dimension (C). I've created a Calculated Measure (B) whose tuple is Measure A with the all member of Dimension C. The Calculated Measure looks like this:
([Measures].[A], [C].[ALL])
Scenario 1
When I place the dimension on a pivot table, the Calculated Measure B reflects the correct value, Measure A by all members of dimension C.
Scenario 2
When I place the dimension in the filter area and filter by one or more members, the Calculated Measure B reflects the correct value, Measure A by all members of dimension C. The same answer as Scenario 1.
Scenario 3
When I place the dimension in the pivot table AND filter by one or more members, I am getting a different answer than I want. It is filtering first by the members selected and then reflecting the Calculated Measure as the All value of ONLY the selected
filter members. I want the calculated Measure to reflect Measure A by all members of dimension C. (The same number as in the first two scenarios)
Is there any way to create the Calculated Measure differently so that all three scenarios give me the same answer?

The issue looks pretty simple yet I got stuck. I want to define the measure [NR Var] as [NR]-[F NR] for years/months/dates before 2009 and [NR]-[FI NR] for 2009 and on. I am using [Year]-[Month]-[Date] hierarchies in the cube. I have defined scope:

but it does not work for some reason. If I get rid of DESCENDANTS function, it works but applies the scope only to the YEAR level. Another problem with using SCOPE is that it affects [NR Var] only yet I have other calcs derivative of [NR Var] which I want
the scope to affect as well.

So I ideally I would like to have something like:

CREATE MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.[Measures].[NR Var] as

case when {
descendants([Date].[Year - Month - Date].[Year].&[2004], 2, self_before_after),
descendants([Date].[Year - Month - Date].[Year].&[2005], 2, self_befor

Can I create a calculated member that will filter out based on a certain dimension? eg, I have a customer dimension and a sales cube. The sales cube has the sales count measure. Can I have a calculated measure that will give me the sales count for all customers that are flagged as 'New'?ÃÂ That way, I have a total count and a New customer count.

I created a calculated measure called ‘Selected Hierarchy’ as follow which returns either ‘Admit’, ‘Received’ or ‘Discharge’ as the hierarchy is selected.

I have a cube with measure groep sickness, and dimensions date and employee.

In the sickness fact table i have employeeID, sick ID, sick start date, sick end date. The employeeID is linked to employee dimension, and both the sick start date and end date are linked to the date dimension.

Now i want to create a calculated measure, which calculates the sum of the duration of all sick cases that ended in period t.

So that I later can create a report with on one axis the period (months) and on the other axes the sum of the duration of all sick cases ended in that month.

I already have a measure which counts sick duration. But how can I add the condition that it only takes the sick cases ended in a period?

I'm trying to create a set of measures that will give me a count of how many customer have bought a product that falls in to different levels in a heirarchy (Department -> Category )

I have a fact table that contains OrderDetail records at the SKU level.

My Product dimension contains the hierarchy assoicated to each SKU

My 3 measures are

Measure 1 - number of items >= 1 and <= 3

Measure 2 - number of items >=4 and <=7

MEasure 3 - number of items >= 8

I have created a names set to cross join all the members in the product hierarchy with the customers

I'm using a Cube to display the % of Total Head Count measure fo [Measure].[Head_Count] with help of cubegrid. I show the record level by level each level form a MDX query and send to the ssas.

I'm using the calculated measure with axis(0,0) formula, when click the second level i get the wrong data. what is the problem ??
