Filter by a member set

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server


I want to filter a dimension using another dimension and I have this query:

SELECT { } ON COLUMNS,Filter([Dimension1].[Hierarchy1].[Attribute1].Members,
[Dimension2].[Hierarchy2].&[39]) ON ROWS FROM Cube1

This query works, but it filters by 1 member only, and now I want to filter by a member set so I change the condition to:


But then I get the error message:

The  function expects a string or numeric expression for the  argument. A tuple set expression was used.

So how can I filter by a member set?

Can the default member for the sql server analysis filter web part be a mdx expression or not

I have designed a dashboard , some parametrized reports ( on date and time) in my case with a cube as datasource, added an analysis services 2005 filter, connected it to the reports. The issue concerns the default value for the filter . I f I choose [Date Local].[Calendar Hierarchy].[All] it works well. But the business requirement is to use the last day where there have been registered a measurement which in my case looks like the following mdx expression: Tail( Filter ([Date Local].[Date Key].[Date Key].Members , ( ( [Advisor Organisation].[Advisor organisation].[Contact Center].&[Denmark]&[Kundelinjen], [Measures].[Calls Offered] , [Date Local].[DK Holiday].&[False] , [Date Local].[Week Day].&[True] ) > 0 ) ), 1).Item(0).Item(0) The expression is all right as I use it in my report as an mdx filter expression. But when I use apply it I get an invalid dafault member value. So the question is : Does the filter support an mdx expression ? If yes, is there another syntax or change in order to make it work ? Thank you a lot for your answer.

Olap parameterized report using a calculated member as filter

I'm in the following situation : olap parameterized report - using an Analysis Services data provider  - with 4 filters and parameters.   One of the filters - Time dimension and one of its hierarchies - includes 2 calculated members called:  Primary and Secondary, which basically describe a time interval of a day based on some business rules. An Excel pivot tabel retrieves data without any problems. But a SSRS 2008 matrix report fails when picking up one of the calculated members , as it does not support it, just like olap browseren in AS 2008 does not support filtering by any calculated member. So it's difficult to find a good explanations to the users ... I'm not quite sure that using the ole db provider for analysis services in stead of analysis services will solve my problem. That's why following question : Are you absolutely sure that using the ole db provider for analysis services will solve my issue ? If not, is it any other work around ? If yes, are there any tips and tricks of using / typing within the ole db provider for analysis services editor when using parameters. ( I tried it once without any succes and found it quite complicated when it comes to handling expressions with parameters). Thank a lot for your answer. Best regards, Mihai   

Dynamic dimension member filter


Is it possible to set a dimension data rule for a role that will filter dimension members dynamically such that only members relating to at least one fact record will be shown?   In particular, the rule should be applied after all other filters on the fact data for the user have been taken into account.

This situation is there is a single client dimension but users should not be able to see the client information (e.g. name, address) unless it is related to a fact that the user has access to.




Using jQuery to Filter Table Rows

The project is using the .net GridView control, so I had limited control over the output HTML code. Still, I think this code can work for most tables. One thing to notice: you should use the class "filterable" on your table or on one of its parents for the code to work.
First, we need a text box:

GridView Multiple Filter AJAX Control

This AJAX control enables the user to filter data within any column inside a GridView. The user can add multiple filters and can delete existing ones too.

Where to Filter the companies returned by the EF?



I am just starting with dynamic data. I have an enttity framework called UsersModel.edmx.

It returns a list of all companies in the tblCompany table. This list is really big.

I need to filter the list returned to all user controls on the client so that it only returns the company that have a CompanyTypeId= 2 or CompanyTypeId= 3 and company name != "".

1 - Is it possible to filter the company list returned on the server so that I can filter only once for all the controls that use that on the client?

My ideas was to do something like this using linq and lambda but I am not sure how:

return tblCompanys.Where(c => c.CompanyTypeId == 2 || c.CompanyTypeId == 3 && ).Where(c=>c.CompanyName != "").OrderBy(c => c.CompanyName).Distinct().OrderBy(c=>c.CompanyName);

2 - I have created a partial class and a metadata class and added the DisplayColumn attribute to use the company name and sort by company name ascending.

Could I use the code to filter the returned companies in this? where?

namespace MarsMedicalModel
    [DisplayColumn("CompanyName", "CompanyName")]
    public partial class t

Filter by Computed Column



After looking for a driver to open legacy dbf drivers to connect, the next level trouble a have is this one:

first, i can retrieve the data but when trying to filter by a parameter (somesc columns) i get an error.

The error says about the database can't determine some blah blah!

The error is a columm tha is formated (  1234  ) about  8 space, fixed. The values in the query appears like that. I resolve this by Trimming Ltrim(ColumnName) and i get this (1234).

Now in SqlExpress, how can i filter by the new Trimmed Expression? (This is a primary key that the DBF use)


SELECT column1, column2, column3


SELECT Ltrim(column1) as NewExp, column2, column3
Where NewExpre = @NewExpres                  -Error-

LDAP nested groups filter


Hi all,

In my organization we use nested groups.

For a particular usage, we have a group (let's assume that the group name "kuku"), and the names of all the nested groups under it contains "kuku" as well.

We may assume that no other group in the LDAP has "kuku" in the name.

I need to create a filter which will return all the users which belong to one of the "kuku"s group.

Obviously, using this filter will bring only the head kukus

(&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=kuku,cn=.rest of the group DN.))

How can I use wild card to fetch all users which belong to any kuku?

For example: (&(&(objectclass=user)(objectclass=person))(memberOf=CN=.*kuku.*))

ISA Server 2004: Developing an Application Filter for Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration S


The beta version of Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 is now publicly available. It includes a rich SDK with several extensibility mechanisms that allow third parties to integrate their specialized solutions on top of the ISA platform. In this article, the author explores the application filter extensibility mechanism, which enables you to add high-level application layer filtering capabilities to ISA Server and to provide rich content filtering solutions. He also highlights the new features of the ISA Server 2004 SDK, then moves on to describe how to develop a basic application filter that monitors all data going through the ISA Server, and how to integrate a filter into the ISA Server management console to create a seamless interface experience for your users.

ISAPI Filters: Designing SiteSentry, an Anti-Scraping Filter for IIS


The Microsoft Internet API for IIS, ISAPI, sits between the client and the Web server. Therefore, you can access the HTTP data stream before IIS gets to see it. The project in this article takes advantage of the ISAPI architecture to create a filter that monitors access to a Web site to determine if visits are from typical users or from automated processes designed to pilfer information from your site. The author tracks the regularity of visits to the site to determine the likely source. Once the determination is made, the app either redirects the user or continues to track information about those hits.

MVC 3 Preview 1. Inject value in Action Filter



I was reading MVC3 Preview 1 release and I found this:

Dependency Injection at all levels - We opened up seams for applying the dependency injection when instantiating components of the framework. This allows developers to hook into the creation of models during model binding, action filters, etc.

Does that mean I can inject a value into an Action Filter?

This is a problem I have for a long time and it would be really useful.

How can I do this?

sqldatasource's filter returns too few records


I have a puzzling issue.  This is in asp.net 2.0, using vb.  I have a gridview that is bound to a sqldatasource.  Here is the datasource code:

        ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:PFPFellowsConnectionString %>"
        ProviderName="<%$ ConnectionStrings:PFPFellowsConnectionString.ProviderName %>"

'asp' is an unrecognized tag prefix or device filter


Hi There,

I have been using Visual Web Developer Express Edition Beta 1 Refresh and Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 for the past few weeks. For some unforeseen reason VS now reports the error -'asp' is an unrecognized tag prefix or device filter on all my .aspx pages.

The solution compiles and launches without any mishap and the only way to alter page control properties is in design view, as intellisense does not function due to the errors.

I've search the web and found a resolution which was to remove all files in the folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application

But the issue still exists.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
