MDX Date Range calculated member

MDX Date Range calculated member

MDX Date Range calculated member


I have [Sales Amount] and [Date].
How can I create a calculated member that will aggregate only the values from [Sales Amount] where month([Date]) is 'Jan' or 'Feb' and year is CurrentYear ?
Then 'Mar' & 'Apr' and so on.

Thank you.

RE: MDX Date Range calculated member

Well, no one can really provide you with the exact code without knowing the schema of your database.  I also suggest to debug this first in an MDX query and then store the calculated measures.  

For example, if you have a Date attribute called "Month Of Year," with the values of 1,2,3,4,5,6,etc., and you have an attribute called "Year" with values like 2000, 2001, 2002, etc., then you could try something like the following:



MEMBER [Measures].[Current Year Jan-Feb Sales]
({[Date].[Month Of Year].&[1], [Date].[Month Of Year].&[2]},
StrToMember('[Date].[Year].&[' + CSTR(YEAR(NOW())) + ']')),
[Measures].[Sales Amount])

MEMBER [Measures].[Current Year Mar-Apr Sales]
({[Date].[Month Of Year].&[3], [Date].[Month Of Year].&[4]},
StrToMember('[Date].[Year].&[' + CSTR(YEAR(NOW())) + ']')),
[Measures].[Sales Amount])

SELECT {[Measures].[Current Year Jan-Feb Sales] , [Measures].[Current Year Mar-Apr Sales] } ON 0
FROM [Your Cube]
