Ytd (MDX)

Returns a set of sibling members from the same level as a given member, starting with the first sibling and ending with the given member, as constrained by the Year level in the Time dimension.


Ytd( [ Member_Expression ] )

Member_Expression

A valid Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression that returns a member.

If a member expression is not specified, the default is the current member of the dimension of type Time (Time.CurrentMember).

The Ytd function is a shortcut function for the PeriodsToDate function where the level is set Year. That is, Ytd(Member_Expression) is equivalent to PeriodsToDate(Year,Member_Expression).

Example

The following example returns the sum of the Measures.[Order Quantity] member, aggregated over the first eight months of calendar year 2003 that are contained in the Date dimension, from the Adventure Works cube.

WITH MEMBER [Date].[Calendar].[First8MonthsCY2003] AS
    Aggregate(
        YTD([Date].[Calendar].[Month].[August 2003])
    )
SELECT 
    [Date].[Calendar].[First8MonthsCY2003] ON COLUMNS,
    [Product].[Category].Children ON ROWS
FROM
    [Adventure Works]
WHERE
    [Measures].[Order Quantity]

Ytd is frequently used in combination with the CurrentMember (MDX) function to display a running cumulative year-to-date total in a report, as shown in the following query:

WITH MEMBER MEASURES.YTDDEMO AS

AGGREGATE(YTD(), [Measures].[Internet Sales Amount])

SELECT {[Measures].[Internet Sales Amount], MEASURES.YTDDEMO} ON 0,

[Date].[Calendar].MEMBERS ON 1

FROM [Adventure Works]
