trying to use currentmem properties to use the dim value as calc measu

trying to use currentmem properties to use the dim value as calc measu


SSAS 2008. I am trying to use currentmember properties on a dimension attribute value as a calculated measure. The dimension has (amongst other) two attributes. Balance and Status. Balance is a value that could have been in a fact table, but is in the dimension due to many other reasons I will not go into here (I will not bore you).

The dimension looks something like this:


DimKey  Balance  Status
1       200.00   H
2       250.00   C
3       165.00   C
4       220.00   C

I must now create a measure from the attribute [Dimension].[Balance] where the {Dimension].[Status] = C

I have tried many calculated member variations, but no luck. Can anyone see anything obviously wrong in my MDX syntax?


    AS SUM([Dimension].[Balance].CurrentMember.Properties("key", typed)
   FORMAT_STRING = "#,#",
   VISIBLE = 1;
