How to Create an MDX Query Parameter to Select 30 Values from a Dimension?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi, I'm using SSRS 2005 to report on an SSAS cube that contains a Procedure dimension.  I don't need to use members of this dimension in my report, but rather need to select records (patients) where their chart has one or more of the codes.  I've researched this today and cannot locate the best approach.  Thus far, I've attempted to create an MDX query parameter as part of my dataset.  However, I don't know whether this is the correct approach, and how to structure the syntax so that only records with one or more procedures are included in the report?  If so, what is the proper MDX syntax for setting my Procedure code equal to the query parameter? Thanks, Sid

Avoiding a SELECT distinct query generated by SSAS when using dimension derived from fact table

Hi, I am using a dimension derived out ot a fact table and the factt able primary key is dimension key. Issue is, there are large number of rows and so many attributes. SSAS issues distinct query and it takes large amount of time. Without the distinct statement, query takes only 3 min for 4 million rows. With the distinct, it takes 20 min. Becuase the fact primary key is the dimension key there is no need of a distinct statement. I know there is a option in the dimension to say "By Table" to avoid this. But unfortuantely, i breach the 4 GB limit for strings. Any suggestions for optimization? Thanks,  Sambath

How do i create dimension based on this query



I have cube called client distinct cube.. that cube is been driven by table A and has the following columns

Client-id, Active ,mcd Elibigle and time_Id

and there another table called Eligibles which has the following columns

Client_id, Time_Id, Plan_Id, plan_Id can be 1 -5


I have a created a dimension called client insurance with table eligbles as the base table and i have added 2 more tables called ben-plans and insurance to get the names for it...

SO when i build this dimension i get the STate, and medicaid and its subsidiarys

the dimension and fact tables for this cube is matched by Client ID and when i process this cube and i get 260 distinct clients for med C but if i query those two table for the same time frame i should 620 distinct instead of 260.. I am not sure what i am doing wrong...

basically i want the dimension to be build by the following query

Select distinct a.client-id from tbl_a a, tbl_eligibles e where a.client-Id = e.client-Id and a.time-Id = 54121 and e.time-Id =54121 and e.plan_ID = 5

Any help will be appreciated.

Get ServerReport selected Parameter value to use in vb query


I'm using ReportViewer in Asp.net 2.0 to view a SSRS report. I need the value of the selected parameter to use in a vb query. The parameters are populated on the server and its a single selection. Doing searches I've come across  ReportViewer1.ServerReport.GetParameters() but I can't figure out if I can use this to determine which value the user has selected in the parameter dropdownlist. Any help would be appreciated.

Get Submitted SQL with Parameter Values (Not @Names)



I want to retrieve the full SQL that my Web Application generates and executes on the database. So when the INSERTED or UPDATED events are triggered on the SqlDataSource, I want to get that particular SQL Statement.

The  problem I've got there though is when I use "e.Command.CommandText" that gets the SQL statement with the paramter names NOT the paramter values. I specifically need the values.

So... how can I get it to display the full SQL statement containing submitted values!?



BDC Column with Ability to Select Multiple Values


Use Case:

We are creating a storage location for technical product articles. These will be SharePoint publishing pages. Each page will have metadata assigned to it to make it searchable by properties. The possible values for one of the columns (Part Number) could potentially be sourced by our ERP system. I'd like to do this to eliminate the possibility of free-text entry errors, but there are probably over 10,000 parts so a drop-down list isn't feasible.


Ideal Situation:

The end user enters the part number and clicks a button to verify it against a BDC entry from our ERP system. If they weren't sure on the part number they needed, they could do a lookup from that metadata entry screen. They'd need to have the option to add multiple part numbers as one technical product article could reference multiple part numbers.



Is BDC an option for all of this or am I looking at a custom metadata solution? I thought I heard along the way that BDC only supported one value choice, but I couldn't find a verification for that in the forums.



How do you create a custom BDC data field that allows for multiple selected values?

I need help creating a custom data field using the BDC column as a base.  We need to allow for multiple selected values instead of just a single one.  I can't find anything on the net which shows how to do this.

On New Item form, select item on choice dropdown based on query result.


I posted this on Experts Exchange awhile back with no answer, so here's hoping someone here has an idea :)

So I've mostly figured this problem out, but I need some help in getting over the hump... note that I'm using JavaScript to do this (SPServices) on SharePoint 07'.

I'm on the New Items page of a list. Based on a user's selection in a "Teacher" dropdown, I'm doing the following:

1.) Get the value of the Teacher field and several other fields (School and Visit Date)
2.) Run a CAML query based on those fields to find the last list item entered for that Teacher

So here's where I'm stuck...

I have 10 choice fields, all with choices 0, 4, 7, and 10. Depending on what they were set to in the last entered item (which I queried), I want to set the selected item on each of those dropdowns to equal that. So "Score 1" was set to "4" on the la

How to create strongly typed datasets with access parameter queries



How can you create strongly typed datasets using an access database against access select statements that use parameters?

The problem is VS.Net doesn't allow select queries with parameters to be dragged onto a form, it only allows access queries without parameters!

I also tried the dataadapter wizard, but again it only allows me to select queries without parameters?

Many thanks in advance
