problem with calculated member and currentmember

problem with calculated member and currentmember


I have a [Product] dimension that is a hierarchy of product category.

I've created a new calculate members, such as:


Member [Product].[Category].[MyCar] as '[Product].[Category].[Ferari_Auto]'

Along with that, I've created a calculated measure that returns a price :

Member [Measures].[Price] as 'Iif ([Product].[Category].CurrentMember  is null, null, ([Product].[Category].CurrentMember, [Measures].[DollarPrice]))'

  Product  Price

 Wolsvaguen  1233
Ferari_Auto    1456
 MyCar          null  

The only problem is that I continuously get NULL  price for [MyElement] calculated member. I'm suspecting that the expression
Product.category.CurrentMember give Null for calculated memeber (why?)

 is there a better way to resolve this problem  this?

I see the same problem in this thread :
