Hierarchy Object (ADO MD)

 

Represents one way in which the members of a dimension can be aggregated or "rolled up." A dimension can be aggregated along one or more hierarchies.

With the collections and properties of a Hierarchy object, you can do the following:

  • Identify the Hierarchy with the Name and UniqueName properties.

  • Return a meaningful string that describes the Hierarchy with the Description property.

  • Return the Level objects that make up the Hierarchy with the Levels collection.

  • Use the standard ADO Properties collection to obtain additional information about the Hierarchy object.

The Properties collection contains provider-supplied properties. The following table lists properties that might be available. The actual property list may differ depending upon the implementation of the provider. See the documentation for your provider for a more complete list of available properties.
