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:

    • AUX

    • CLOCK$

    • COM1 through COM9 (COM1, COM2, COM3, and so on)

    • CON

    • LPT1 through LPT9 (LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, and so on)

    • NUL

    • PRN

The following table lists additional characters that cannot be used within the value of a Name element, depending on the parent element.
