The server does not evaluate the text between the comment characters, /* and */. Comments can be inserted on a separate line or within a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) statement. Multiple-line comments must be indicated by /* and */.
There is no maximum length for comments. Comments can be nested; for example, /* Test /*Comment*/ Text*/ is an example of a nested comment.
The following example demonstrates the use of this operator.
/* This member returns the gross profit margin for product types and reseller types crossjoined by year. */ SELECT [Date].[Calendar].[Calendar Year].Members * [Reseller].[Reseller Type].Children ON 0, [Product].[Category].[Category].Members ON 1 FROM /* Select from the Adventure Works cube. */ [Adventure Works] WHERE [Measures].[Gross Profit Margin]
