Returns a String that represents the current object.(Overrides Object.ToString().)
A named set is a persisted set expression, which is associated with an alias and defined as part of the structure of a cube. In Multidimensional Expressions (MDX), a set expression can be a lengthy and complex declaration. A named set makes it easier to manage a set expression that is used regularly in MDX or XML for Analysis queries that involve the cube and provides a way of maintaining the set expression independently of the queries that use it.
Aencapsulates the alias and set expression of a named set, so that the metadata of the named set can be examined and incorporated into queries.
