Excel 2010 - Calculated Members on Dimension

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Hi

Was wondering if there was any workaround in Excel 2010 to make these appear. My understanding is that the behaviour is unchanged from 2007.

Does anyone know of any plans to support calculated members on dimensions in Excel?

Cheers

Please Help with Defining Calculated Measure based on Dimension Members

  

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 members in dimension are not filterable in reports

  

Hi all,

I have created a time calculation dimension (based on David ) with calculated members. When I work in Management Studio, I can select the dimension called [Date Calculations] and use it in the query. The only thing is, I don't need everytime all the available calculations, so I want to restrict them by selecting a few.

This is what I have done in the query below, but when I want to run this query I get an error:

Excel 2010 OLAP Pivot Tables - Can a Date Dimension name be used as a Date not String?

  

Scenario:  Have built a SSAS 2008 cube and am using Excel 2010 pivot tables as the UI to access the data.  The end-users want to be able to treat the Date Dimension name value as an Excel friendly date, mainly to apply custom formats for pivot charts (such as mmm-yy or dd/mmm/yyyy) and to be able to sort ascending and descending.

Problem:  Although the Date dimension attribute is setup with 'mmm-yy' formatted text as the name and a datetime value as the value, Excel refuses to treat the dimension name as a date.  The result being custom formatting is ignored and pivot sorting results in text sorting only (Apr-00, Apr-01 etc).

Investigation:  Have tried several string combinations for dimension attribute name (even using the Excel datevalue numbers) with no success. Have found some earlier blogs which go part of the way in explaining.  It appears that no matter what you set as the name value you are always going to end up with a string label that can't be formatted or sorted in any other way other than text, as indicated by Darren Gosbell answer to a similiar question.

“...When you display a dimension attribute in an Excel pivot table what you are seeing is the name of each member. The name property of

Sorting calculated members in dimension

  

Hello. I've created a calculated member in dimension member.

My dimension member have three values: Item A, Item B and Item D. My calculated member is Item C (Item C = Item A + Item B). When I browsing the cube this calculated member is shown at the bottom of the list.

Is possible to specify a sort order in MDX for a calculated member? I use a SSAS 2008R2.

Thanks in advance.
