How to slice results of a calculated member by the members of a hierarchy?

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :
 

Dear experts,

I am trying to define a Calculated Member such as:

WITH MEMBER [Sales Member] AS
SUM
(
 (
  [Location].[Hierarchy].[Channel].&[Direct],
  [Date].[Date].&[Orbitrary Date]
 ),
 [Measures].[Sales]
)

The problem is that when I am trying to do something like this in MDX:

SELECT 
 [Sales].[Sales Member] ON 0,
 [Location].[Hierarchy].Members ON 1
FROM [Cubix]

 

I get a result that looks like Sales for a given Date, summed across every Location, CrossJoined() with every Member of the Location Hierarchy. Feels like I am missing something very important in terms of interacting with Hierarchies via MDX. How could I go about implementing said Calculated Member? I would also love to hear a basic explanation, of the principle if that's not entirely too much to ask for.

Thank you.

overriding "grand totals" for calculated members

  
hi all, is there a workaround for overriding "grand totals" for calculated members?  (I cannot use the workaround whereby I create the calculation in the DSV or view directly due to it being a pretty complex Descendant parent/child calculation).   thanks much for any thoughts, Cos

PeriodsToDate problem with calculated member

  
Hi I've come across an example where my calculated member will yield wrong results. I've been trying in the last few days to find a solution for this, but so far no luck. I have two measures: [Measures].[Marketing Spending (Actual)]: Aggregation: Sum [Measures].[New Subscriptions (Actual)]: Aggregation: Sum Then I created following calculated member in the schema: [Measures].[CPA (Actual)]=[Measures].[Marketing Spending (Actual)]/[Measures].[New Subscriptions (Actual)] If I run a query like this I get the correct results: SELECT [Measures].[CPA (Actual)] ON 0 from [Global B2C Weekly KPI Cube] WHERE [Date.Weekly Calendar].[2010].[1]:[Date.Weekly Calendar].[2010].[32] I can even add some other dimensions and all looks fine. But, when I create a calculated Member in the MDX query with PeriodsToDate and Aggregate, the results looks like the sum of the CPAs by week. WITH MEMBER [Measures].[x] AS Aggregate(PeriodsToDate([Date.Weekly Calendar].[2010],[Date.Weekly Calendar].[2010].[32]),[Measures].[CPA (Actual)]) SELECT [Measures].[x] ON 0 from [Global B2C Weekly KPI Cube] So my take is that as PeriodsToDate gives back all the members, the calculated measure is calculated for each member and then summed up.  In this case the measures should be summed first for the time period and then the calculation should be performed. I don't want to create extra memb

No results for users that are members of a 'Deny All' policy for web application

  
I have a SharePoint Farm with search working happily.  This farm also has a remote access component that I have configured on a separate extended web application.  The business has some accounts that it does not want to allow access to the Intranet remotely, and has added these accounts to a 'Non Remote Intranet Users' security group.  I then set up a rule on the Extranet zone to Deny All access for this group.  The Default zone still allows them to browse however, which is working great. The only problem is that members of this group do not get any search results whatsoever.  From the logs it appears that all results get security trimmed.  :( Can I disable security trimming somehow?  Is this a bug?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  :)

Trouble With Calculated Member

  
WITH MEMBER [Promotion].[Campaign].[Program].[All Others] AS [Promotion].[Campaign].[Program].&[Acquisition]+[Promotion].[Campaign].[Program].&[Publications] SELECT [Measures].[Revenue] ON 0, [Promotion].[Campaign].[Program].ALLMEMBERS ON 1 FROM MyCube In the MDX above "Promotion" is the dimension.  "Campaign" is a user hierarchy.  "Program" is a level/attribute. I keep getting: Query (2, 2) The member '[Program]' was not found in the cube when the string, [Promotion].[Campaign].[Program].[All Others], was parsed. What am I doing wrong here?

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

create a calculated member in a cube in SSAS

  
Hello   I’m trying to create a calculated member in a cube in SSAS and was hoping someone could help.   What I’m looking to do is count the number of occurrences of a value in a field.  I have Status field that contains New, Renewals and Enquiries and another field that contains a count, the problem I have and the reason for this query is the count is set to 0 for Enquiries.   The tSQL equivalent would be something like...   Select Date, Status , count(Status) From aTable Where Status = ‘ENQ’   And to summarise, what I’m looking to do would look something like the below   Date Status Count Commission Apr-10 NEW 1 100 May-10 NEW 1 100 May-10 REN 1 50 Apr-10 ENQ 0 0 May-10 ENQ 0 0 Jun-10 REN 1 50 May-10 NEW 1 100 Just looking at the ENQ by month. Date Count of ENQ     Apr-10 1     May-10 1     Jun-10 0       Any help gratefully received.

How do I create a calculated member for daily total revenue?

  
Hi everyone! I'm new to MDX and I can't figure out how to create a working calculated member. Here's business background: There are 2 measures in the cube - a and b. The formula for Total Revenue is a - b - $1000 ( don't ask me why =), 1000 is being subtracted from each day's Total Revenue - a ball park adjustment for something) My calculated member [Measures]. [Total Revenue] looks like this Case     When IsEmpty([Measures].[a]- [Measures].[b])     Then null     Else [Measures].[a]- [Measures].[b]-1000 Unfortunately this calculated member doesn't work correctly, it subtracts $1000 from everywhere and not from the intersection of [Dim Calendar].[HierarchyTime].[Day] and Total Revenue. How do I make it work in accordance with business logic? The objective is to adjust Total Revenue by subtracting $1000 for each day.  Thanks in advance!

Parent child hierarchy & MDX to fetch particular level & all members below it along with measures us

  
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.

MDX query performance is slow for complex logic implementation in Calculated Members.

  
We have implemented a calculated members which involves multiple calculated members  called in a nested e.q. Cal1 calls Cal2 and Cal2 calls  Cal3  and Cal3 calls Cal4 .  And when browing Cal1 through Excel it takes around 30 mins for getting result from a Partition having row count around 5 million. Follwing are the information on the scenario I am having: We are having partitioning in the cube. one partition contains around 4-6 million records Processers on Query Server: 4 quad core RAM on the Query Server: 64 GB Calculated members having simple calculation logics are giving results in no time. There is a Calculated members which calls 6 intermediate calculated in nested way and with small Data Set like 5-6 k rows it is running fine.   Any help will be much appreciated.   Regards, Sandeep

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   

Use of Calculated members from one fact into the other fact MDX

  
Hi, I have a FactBookvalues which calculates the Book value of several aircraft. this book value has a startdate going fro example from 1980 up to inlcuding 2030. With this MDX statement im able to determine what the book value is for a specific month: SELECT {[Measures].[Asset Bookvalue balance]} ON 0,   [MSN].[Asset Label].allmembers on 1 from CMSX_DWH_OLAP where {StrToMember("[Book Value Start Date].[Year - Quarter - Month].[Month].&["  + Format(now(), "yyyy") + "]&[" +  Format(now(), "MM") + "]")}   this work great in SQL server management studio, it will list all aircraft with the bookvalue for that particulair month.What i want is to get this value for that specific date and use this value as a fact for the AssetFact. how is this possible? i tried to make a calculated member but this didnt work. Im a bit stuck. I dont want to get this bookvalue from the ETL process but from the the cube itself to see how you can reuse dataelements in other areas of ssas
