Retrieve data from dimension only if it is a parent.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 18, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

I have a dimension DimDepartmentName
which has the following fields

ParentDepID - references back to DimDepartmentName.DepID - Will be blank if it is a parent.  This field is set to ParentIsBlankSelfOrMissing in the cube.

I need retrieve the departmentname & depid only when it is a parent. 

I am trying to write the mdx query based on the parent level but it does not work.

Any help is appreciated.

Non parent-child dimension with fact data at different levels... How!

Hi all, Quite new to SSAS, wondering if anyone could help with the following... I've got a dimension with attributes that indicate geographical location based upon UK postal boundaries - so ~1.8m Postcodes > ~10000 Postcode Sectors (PCDS) > ~3000 Postcode Districts (PCD) > ~100 Postcode Areas (PCA). The problem I have is that the address information is not of the highest quality. I have matched 50% of my facts to postcodes, of the remaining 50% i've mapped them to PCDS, PCD or PCA, where possible, leaving the lower-levels as NULL in those cases. My attribute hierarchy works fine where I have complete records all the way down the hierarchy, but I only have a single UNKNOWN member at the top (GOR) level. I want an UNKNOWN member at each level. It makes sense to me how to do this using a Parent-Child dimension, but i'm keen to avoid that as the performance is terrible. I'm hoping there's a method of configuring this. Any help massively appreciated.

How to retrieve data from SqlDataSource and pass to a variable?


Hi there,

I have a page in my website where there is very little code-behind. I only have two lines of code in Page_Load() and the rest of the code is declarative ASP.NET code. I have a FormView control which uses a SqlDataSource to get some order information. The SqlDataSource calls a stored procedure called usp_GetOrderDetails, here's the code for the SqlDataSource:

    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="sdsFormOrderDetails" runat="server" 
ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ForexDB %>"
ProviderName="<%$ ConnectionStrings:ForexDB.ProviderName %>"
SelectCommand="usp_GetOrderDetails" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure"
UpdateCommand="usp_UpdateOrder" UpdateCommandType="StoredProcedure"
<asp:ControlParameter Name="orderId" ControlID="grdOrders" PropertyName="SelectedDataKey.Value" />
<asp:ControlParameter Name="orderId" ControlID="frmOrderDetails" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />

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?

SSAS - How to get other members from dimension that has Parent Child hierarchy?

I have a Sales Territory dimension that has employee and parent employee attribute on which parent child hierarchy is defined and it gives below hierarchy while browsing - - Mark Rolls --- Lumin Jacs ----- Larry Gomes ------- Messica Owens ------- Tom Ted ----------- Jackson Lopez ----- Matthew Ron --- Fred jacob - Jason Ron --- Jecy Pedro   But beside this parent-child hierarchy I have other attributes like employee address, email and telephone. My facts related sales transaction is tagged to lowest level. For example here facts are available only for Jackson Lopez (being Field Executive). When use below query I get complete sales reporting hierarchy result with some measures like sales amount, sales volume. But while accesing other attributes like address or email, it's repeating address/email/telephone of jackson Lopes everywhere to whom fact record is linked, Actually I want address/email/telephone of each sales employee from that dimension within hierarchy. How do I get it? The query I used is: Here Parent Terr ID is parent child hierachy. SELECT ( Descendants( { [Dim SalesRegion].[Parent Terr ID].[Employee Level 01].&[538018] /* here Mark Rolls is 538018 */ }, 0,AFTER), NONEMPTY([Dim SalesRegion].[Emp Address].[Emp Address].Members), NONEMPTY([Dim SalesRegion].[Emp Email].[Emp Email].Members) ) ON ROWS , { ([Dim Date].[The Year].[The Year].[CY-2010], [Dim
