Aggregation (Decision Support Objects)
This feature will be removed in the next version of Microsoft SQL Server. Do not use this feature in new development work, and modify applications that currently use this feature as soon as possible.
The Aggregation object in Decision Support Objects (DSO) provides access to aggregations associated with a partition in Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 Analysis Services. The MDStores collection of the DSO Partition object allows access to aggregations. The Aggregation object uses the MDStore interface, with a ClassType property of clsAggregation.
The Aggregation object is used to:
Provide access to the dimensions, data sources, and measures associated with an aggregation.
Edit the properties and objects associated with an aggregation.
Determine the various states of an aggregation, such as validity and processing status.
