The Source element is an object reference to a single partition to be merged into a target partition specified by the Target element of the parent MergePartitions element.

The following example combines all four partitions of the Internet Sales measure group into the Internet_Sales_2004 target partition. The example refers to the Adventure Works cube of the Adventure Works DW Multidimensional 2012 sample Analysis Services database.
