Required. Name of the cube to which this measure belongs.

MEASURE_NAME

DBTYPE_WSTR

MEASURE_UNIQUE_NAME

DBTYPE_WSTR

Required. Unique name of the measure. For providers that generate unique names by qualification, each component of this name is delimited.

MEASURE_AGGREGATOR

DBTYPE_I4

Required. How a measure was derived. Can be one of the following values:

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_SUM

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_COUNT

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_MIN

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_MAX

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_AVG

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_VAR

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_STD: The aggregation function was SUM, COUNT, MIN, MAX, AVG, VAR, or STDEV, respectively.

  • DMEASURE_AGGR_CALCULATED: The measure was derived from a formula that was not any single function above.

  • MDMEASURE_AGGR_UNKNOWN: The aggregation function or formula used to derive this measure was unknown.

DATA_TYPE

DBTYPE_UI2

Required. Data type of the measure. Can be any of the types listed in Appendix A: Data Types.

NUMERIC_PRECISION

DBTYPE_UI2

Required. If the measure object's data type is exact numeric, this is the maximum precision of the property. NULL for all other property types.

NUMERIC_SCALE

DBTYPE_I2

Required. If the measure object's type indicator is DBTYPE_NUMERIC or DBTYPE_DECIMAL, this is the number of digits to the right of the decimal point. Otherwise, this value is NULL.

MEASURE_UNITS

DBTYPE_WSTR

Required. The unit of measurement. Examples are "dollars", "boxes sold", "tons shipped", "pounds", and "millions". Typically, a consumer appends this to the display caption of the measure. If a unit is not available, the provider returns an empty string.
