I have a exchange rate in the source sql table. An example of the data is...


Year Curr  Measure  Rate
2001 GBP    100.00   1
2001 ZAR   2200.00   12.12
2001 USD   5000.00   1.85
2002 AUD   1600.00   2.12
2002 USD    400.00   1.86

...I need to multiply the measure with the rate in a cube and wwould like to use MDX for it. But I think the Aggregate Funcion property must be set to none, as aggregation of the various rate types makes no sense, it is therefore not a simple calculated measure whereby a aggrgated total value of all the measures are multipled by an aggregated totl value of the rates. What I need to do is apply the measure x rate calculation at the granular level, and that result can then be aggregated. I am sure this is possible in MDX but how??
