Every element that is used to define an object (an instance of Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services, a hierarchy, an attribute, and so on) has a Name element as a property. The value of a Name element has the following restrictions:
The value cannot contain leading or trailing spaces. If leading or trailing spaces are included in the value of a Name element, those spaces will be implicitly removed by Analysis Services.
The value cannot contain control characters. If control characters are included in the value of a Name element, those characters will be implicitly removed by Analysis Services.
The following reserved values cannot be used:
COM1 through COM9 (COM1, COM2, COM3, and so on)
LPT1 through LPT9 (LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, and so on)
The following table lists additional characters that cannot be used within the value of a Name element, depending on the parent element.
