### Measure Dependent Calculated Measure

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.

### Optimize Calculated Measure containing COUNT EXISTING

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!

### Calculated measure between two dates

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.

### Which version of Excel to install for a calculated measure?

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? Errors and Warnings from Response  MdxScript(Sales and Returns) (94, 8) The '[Excel].[FINV]' function does not exist.Kerry

### Calculated Measure Help - Comparing Months from two Date Dimensions

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,

### Calculated Measure scenario with a filtered dimensional attribute

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?

### cummulative calculated measure

HI Guys

i have time Dimemsion and hiriarchy as Year-month-week-day

i have a account Dimension

Actual as measure

i want to create a Calculated measure for Balance Account which is an member in account dimension

i want to create a calculated Cumulative measure for balance sheet account like the below

which should give me sum of cumulative of actual amounts for Required period

Time                           FY2010-Period1      FY2010-Period2      FY2010-Period3

Balance Sheet                  \$2000                      2100                  4100

the above will calculate the Balance of previous month + current month so on

i hope i am making sense

Kind Regards

Hello,

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:

Scope ([Measures].[NR Var], {
descendants([Date].[Year - Month - Date].[Year].&[2004], 2, self_before_after),
descendants([Date].[Year - Month - Date].[Year].&[2005], 2, self_before_after),
descendants([Date].[Year - Month - Date].[Year].&[2006], 2, self_before_after),
descendants([Date].[Year - Month - Date].[Year].&[2007], 2, self_before_after),
descendants([Date].[Year - Month - Date].[Year].&[2008], 2, self_before_after)});
this=[NR]-[F NR];
End 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

### Calculated measure that works across multiple hierarchies

Dear all,

I need to create a calculated measure for YTD that dynamically calculates based on the date hierarchy selected by the user (SSRS & Excel).

On the date dimension, I have 2 hierarchies "Year-Month-Day" and "Year-Week-Day", that both share the year and day attributes.

Many thanks,

Matt

### Problem with a calculated measure that works across different time hierarchies.

I was inspired to create a calculated measure which works with all available time hierarchies after reading this original post.

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

CASE

when NOT IsError(Extract ( Axis (0), [Admit Date].[Date Hierarchy]).Count ) then 'Admit'

### mdx calculated measure sum of sick duration for all sick cases ended in period T

Hello,

I'm using SQL server 2008 standard edition.

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?

### Named Set and Calculated Measure returns #Error values

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

CREATE SET CUBE_A.[NS Customer]

AS { EXISTS

### Calculated measure with axis problem

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 ??

### How to get calculated measure to rollup correctly?

Hi,

I have created a calculated measure that computes a weighted ratio for the current balance of all loans that fall into various risk ratings:

WITH

MEMBER [MEASURES].[Weighted Ratio] AS

(Measures.[Current Balance] * [Risk Rating].[Loan Rating Code].CurrentMember.member_value) /

(

[Measures].[Current Balance],

Ancestor([Risk Rating].[Loan Rating Code].CurrentMember, 1)

), FORMAT_STRING = "Standard"

SELECT

{[Measures].[Current Balance], [Measures].[Weighted Ratio]} on COLUMNS,

[Risk Rating].[Loan Rating Code].MEMBERS ON ROWS

FROM

[Test Cube]

The problem is that the results come back only at the child level, instead of being summed up:

Current Balance     Weighted R

### how to create calculated measure in cube that always gives value on Year level in Date hierarchy

Hello,

I'm using SQL 2008 standarrd. Probably a simple question,

But I want to creata a calculated measure in a cube that always displays a measure(e.g. total sales) on the year level of the Date-dimension-hierachy.

So wether I choose Year, Quarter, Month or Day, it always shows the measure value  (sales) on the Year level. How to do that?

Regards, Hennie
