Analysis :: Drilling Down On Cumulative Measures

Oct 1, 2015

I have a cumulative measure in Tabular, and when I filter by a date in SQL it brings back all rows up to that date. However, when I drill down on any of the numbers, it only brings back rows related to the filtered date, and not the cumulative rows. Is there any way round this at all? Major obstacle for me at the moment...

Analysis Services - Dimensions && Measures

Aug 13, 2004

I have a problem where I have 3 three measures in a virtual cube:
"Actual", "Budget" and "Full Year Budget".

The dimensions I have are:
- Account No_ / Name
- Cost Code
- Sub Cost Code
- Time/Dates
- Budget Name

Both "Actual" & "Budget" measures need to be filtered/dimensioned by:
- Account No_ / Name
- Cost Code
- Sub Cost Code
- Time/Dates (exclusive to "Actual", "Budget")

Thus have put these in one cube

AND "Full Year Budget" needs to be filtered/dimensioned by:
- Account No_ / Name
- Cost Code
- Sub Cost Code
- Budget Name (exclusive to "Full Year Budget")

THUS have put this as one cubeÖ

I then created a virtual cube, with the 2 cubes thinking that the dimensions I created in the original cubes would only filter the measures of the original cube measures in the virtual cube. ...BUT all dimension filters in the virtual cube filter all measures in the virtual cube, irrespective of which dimensions were created with the original cubes.

please help!

Analysis :: How To Show Measures Dynamically For Different Dimensions

May 4, 2015

Actually I want to do distinct sum on a measure group, please find the below table as sample

XL Measure group
LK     OK      Amount
1        10         100
1         11        100
3          30       250
3          31       250
3          32       250

For the above measure group two dimensions have relationships, One is L dimension which is having relationship with XL on LK and One is O dimension which is having relationship with XL on OK. If I drag L dimension attributes  it should show results as below

LK LName  Amount
1     A         100
3     C         250

But above results are coming as below

LK LName  Amount
1     A         200
3     C         750

If I drag O dimension attributes along with L dimension, it should show results as below.

LK  LName   OK     OKName   Amount
1        A         10      XYZ         100
1        A         11      UVW        100
3        C         30      PQR         250
3        C          31     KLM         250
3        C          32     TUV         250

I used formula Measures.Amount/Measures.Count, this formula is not showing correct results when I don't drag any dimensions, it is showing results for All member  as 425, but it should show as 350.

So I made a same change ([L].[LK].Currentmember, Measures.Amount)/([L].[LK].Currentmember,Measures.Count), this worked fine but performance is very low and so stopped working on this.

Atlast I did the measure group like this

LK     OK      LAmount   OAmount
1        10         100        100
1         11        0            100
3          30        300        300
3          31        0            300

I want to show Measures.LAmount when only L dimension is querying and want to show OAmount when both L dimension and O dimension are querying. Is this possible ?

Analysis :: MDX Need To Filter Measures Based On A Dimension

Oct 26, 2015

I am pretty new to MDX and am having trouble getting what I need out of this MDX query. Some business rules:

Gross Amount applies to all clients, whether Type A or Type B.  I always want to return Gross Amount.Some clients are Type A, some are Type B, some are both, and some are neither.There are Type A Net Amount and Type B Net Amount values for all clients, but I only want to display the Type A Net value if the client is a Type A client, only Type B if the client is a Type B, or both for both, and neither for neither.  I would like to return blank/null, not $0.00, for those values that should not be displayed.

Here's the basic query.  

SELECT { [Measures].[Gross Amount],
[Measures].[Type A Net Amount],
[Measures].[Type B Net Amount]
NON EMPTY {[Dim Client].[Parent Client Code].[Parent Client Code] *
[Dim Client].[Child Client Code].[Child Client Code] *
[Dim Client].[Is Type A].CHILDREN *
[Dim Client].[Is Type B].CHILDREN
FROM ClientInfo

Here's the DESIRED output........

Analysis :: Drillthrough With Measures From Two Measure Groups

Nov 4, 2014

I'm trying to show measures from 2 measures groups in a drillthrough. Obviously, it's not possible with a standard drillthrough action, but I still hope that I can somehow achieve this with the ASSP GetCustomDrillthroughMDX function.

Speaking in AdventureWorks2008R2 terms: Imagine I have a pivot table with Product Categories in filter (say, filtered on Gloves) and "Internet Sales Amount" as measure. From context menu in Excel I can call the drillthrough action which shows me the individual sales records. I would like to show in drillthrough additionally "End of Day Rate" measure from "Exchange Rates" measure group.

One option would be to join FactInternetSales with FactCurrencyRate and make EndOfDayRate a physical measure in the "Internet Sales" measure group. This is a pretty huge overhead for my scenario and I'd like to avoid this.

Another one would be to call something completely external for a drillthrough (for example, a SRRS Report).

Analysis :: Large Tabular Cube With Lots Of Measures - Keyboard Stuck?

Apr 24, 2015

large tabular cubes (SSAS 2012 SP2), with lots of calculations, the keyboard seems to be stuck, one cannot type or make any modifications to any measures, even after closing a project.

The only workaround is to completely restart the machine.  Using Visual Studio 2010 Shell.

Are there any possibly corruptions or calc limitations that one should be aware of?

Notable that this never happens with any small cubes, but just with the largest cube that we have, that has probably tens of calcs.

Analysis :: How To Get Cumulative Count Of Business Days

Jul 9, 2015

I am trying to get a cumulative count of business days. I have a column in my date dimension BusinessDayInd which is 'Y' or 'N'. I have been trying to create a calculated column in the cube but have not been successful yet. I think I'm close with this:

   COUNTROWS(FILTER(DATESMTD(PostingDate[Posting Date]), PostingDate[BusinessDayInd] = "Y"))

However, this is giving me a count of calendar days for all business days and null for non-business days. How do I apply the filter to DATESMTD? I've tried many iterations of this using CALCULATETABLE, CALCULATE, and FILTER. All are giving me the same result.

What am I doing wrong?

Analysis :: Measures Showing No Rows In SSAS Browser After Cube Processed Ok And Calculate Command Is There

Jun 10, 2015

I've created a cube and it processed fine. The calculate command is there. The measure that I'm attempting to run in the SSAS/Visual Studios browser is simply a count rows measure.  When I drag the measure to the window, it says no rows available.  If I click on the filter that allows nulls, the only change it makes is that it goes from no rows available to "NULL".

Analysis :: Create A Calculated Member For Cumulative Sum Using Fiscal Calendar?

Jun 2, 2015

I am trying to create a calculated member for Cumulative sum using Fiscal Calendar using the below code:

WITH MEMBER [Measures].[No of Accounts Cumulative] 
AS 'Sum(PeriodsToDate([DimFinancialDate].[FiscalMonth].[(all)],[DimFinancialDate].[FiscalMonth].CURRENTMEMBER), [Measures].[No of Accounts])'
   {[Measures].[No of Accounts],[Measures].[No of Accounts Cumulative]} ON COLUMNS, 
   [DimFinancialDate].[FiscalMonth].Members ON ROWS
FROM [Acquisition]
where [DimFinancialDate].[Year -  Quarter -  Month -  Date].[FiscalYear].&[2014-04-01T00:00:00];

Getting below OUTPUT:

No of Accounts No of Accounts Cumulative
All 1763 1763
Apr 14 116 353
May 14 30 383
Jun 14 284 667
Jul 14 112 779
Aug 14 38 817


Basically, It is taking all the members of the Fiscal date dimension to compute the output, But what i am expecting is to compute only for Fiscal calendar that is from April 2014 - March 2015.

Accessing Sub Reports In (Drilling Inside The Other Report)

Jan 31, 2008

Dear Technical Team,

I am facing an error while displaying a sql reporting service report on my page. The report it self is build using Report server project. It consists of a Main report which contains a bar graph. Upon clicking on the bar graph, it takes you to another report (i have given in the jump to report section), call it Report 2. Upon clicking on Report 2 it shows another report say Report 3. It is displayed properly as long as i run the preview of the report in my report project. When i deploy this report on the report server and trying it to access using my code behind. The main reports runs very fine. Upon clicking, it does not do anything and when i click again it display error, the report does not contain any thing. Sometime it does not show even the error. But just could not drill me in.

I presume on the click event of the report which is a char item, it calls the page load event, and it loses it parent report information or something like that. Please can any body guide me how to do this.

The following functionality i need to achieve with my web page.

My main report : Main report :upon click on any char item, it should take you to the second report.
My second report : and on clicking on charitem on the the second report, it should take me to the third report.

Please help

All Measures Show No Values

May 29, 2008

I made a number of dimension and calculated member mods and notice that all now no base or calculated measures display values, they just show blanks in the browser and query window. To try to isolate, I've
(1) removed every dimension and calculated member
(2) verified there are no defaultmembers for dimensions
(3) verified there are no dimension attributes set to IsAggregatable = False

(4) verified there are no deploy or script errors
(5) fully processed every dm and fact
(6) verified there are dim and claim records loaded with values in all appropriate columns

When I process the cube, it shows that rows are read, etc... All that looks normal. Just when I browse or query, all measures display as blanks or nulls.

What could cause this behavior? Any ideas on how to futher isolate? I can go to a backup but very concerned that this can happen with no error messages or warnings, so I want to find the cause.

Calculating Median Value From Measures And Dimensions

May 24, 2007

I am facing some problem in calculating Median

I am trying to calculate the median value using one of the measures and a dimension value.

Time is a measure in my cube and OpId is one of the dimensions.The result is as follows:

opid time median

1 55

2 23

3 23

Total 23

The Time here for Op Id 1 is the aggregation for all the rows whose OpId is 1.I want the median of the values whose OpId is 1 which is not showing at the moment.

What I am getting here is the median for all of the OpId but what I really want is the median for each of the individual Opid's as well.

I am using a calculated field Median with the following expression.


( [Dim Operation].[Dim Operation].currentmember.children ,[Measures].[Elapsed Time])

Adding Measures To Report - Receive Error

Jun 19, 2007


My report, which has a matrix and a chart work fine. Then...

I click on the Data tab, drag a measure into the results grid. At this point I haven't added the new measure to the matrix or anything in Layout.

I click the Preview tab and get the following message: "The definition of the report XXX is invalid. More than one data set, data region, or grouing in the report has the name 'YYY'. Data set, data region and grouping names must be unique within a report.

Ok, I get the point. But why and how would adding a measure give me this issue? Where can I even find where this is being duplicated?

The message refers to a name that is a parameter, and I don't see anything in there that might cause this.

Thank you for the help.

Problems With Filters/Drillthrough/calculated Measures

May 20, 2008

Wondering if anyone has any work arounds.

We have a cube that has financial data in it. There are report actions on cells. I want them to be able to drill through the the supporting data stored in the fact table and all the measures I am showing are calculated measures.

Users connect to this cube from Excel 2007. If they use a "Filter" in Excel and do not select "All" or "One" of the members of the filter hierarchy, then the action dissapears. Microsoft explained this is because that cell then has a calculated cordinate and they can't determine the action to perform.

Has anyone experienced a need to do this? Can you provide me alternatives?



The functionality I am looking for is not available in the BIDS either (Well it is to a point--if you select the first 2, 3, 4...members in the filter, the action will still appear. It only reads the first one however. If you select the members starting with any but the first, the action disappears).

Multiple Measures From One Column In Fact Table

May 23, 2008

I have a fact table with one column storing string values. I need to use this column as a measure, but as different measure. Here's a snapshot of the fact ( with 4 columns)

#1 #2 #3 #4(value)
1 1 2007-12-20 Male
2 1 2007-12-20 French
1 2 2007-12-20 Female
2 2 2007-12-20 English

I have a dimension which is like
id name
1 Gender
2 Language

Is there a way to get measures from column 4 in fact table - so that I can give reports like how gender graph during a time period or language usage during a time period. The design will have more than 2 dimension members, so fact column can hold more data like location, etc...

Can you please suggest a way to handle such kind of fact table?

When I try to create a measure based on that column (and 'no aggregation') - I get error like - "Error 1 Errors in the metadata manager. The data type of the 'value' measure is not valid because the data type of the measure is a string type."

This is so trivial but I cannot figure out where the calculated fields/measures area is in the PP window. Is there something to toggle it on and off?

It is version 10.50.4000.0. This add-in does not have a calculated fields/measures are at the bottom of the PP window.

Power Pivot :: Define SSAS Tabular Measures In Batch?

Nov 19, 2015

We have an Excel PowerPivot model that we are trying to move to SSAS Tabular. The model is complex and has over 300 measures. To group these in Excel, we pasted in dummy tables and defined the measures in logical groupings. Now when we are migrating to SSAS, we have to delete the pasted tables --that have ALL of the measures, in order for the import to work successfully.

How to migrate the model? We have a nice report of all of the measures from DAX Studio, but I am not looking forward to manually re-entering 300 measures through the user interface. Is there any way to define measures in batch? Or is there a way to change the pasted table to a file so the import will work? Will the import work in SSAS 2016?

Power Pivot :: Using StartDate And EndDate From Timeline In Calculated Measures?

Jul 31, 2015

For some of my calculations it is mandatory to get the first and the last date, filtered by the slicer type "timeline".

This works well as long as the date is not used on rows or columns ...

As soon as I'm using theDate within the rows this very simplistic dax measure doesn't work ...

I'm wondering how to determine the StartDate (from the timeline) and the EndDate (from the timeline) when "thedate" is actively contributing to the filtercontext.

In my opinion it is not another example of the "event in progress" situation, due to the fact that start and end dates are actively selected by the user and can not be derived from within the date model.
