DIMENSION PROPERTIES Example

Consider the following MDX statement:

SELECT
   {Measures.Cost, Measures.Sales}
      DIMENSION PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION ON COLUMNS,
   CROSSJOIN({Venkatrao, Netz}, Products.MEMBERS)
      DIMENSION PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION, MEMBER_UNIQUE_NAME,
      SalesRep.[Phone Number], Products.SKU ON ROWS
FROM Sales
WHERE ([1991], Qtr1, USA)

This statement results in the following flattened rowset:

results in a flattened rowset

It is important to note the following:

  • It is assumed that the Products dimension has only one level.

  • All names that are made of multiple components — that is, all column names and column values for the UNIQUE_NAME columns — are component-delimited. (Each component is delimited.)

  • Although the CAPTION property was asked for on the COLUMNS axis, it was ignored, and column names consist of UNIQUE_NAME values.

  • For an explanation of the NULL values in the first row, see Appearance of NULLs in a Flattened Rowset.
