In SSAS, can parent-child DATAMEMBER name be customised

In a parent-child dimension in SSAS, the datamember is automatically named the same as the parent. E.g. Division X Risk Register Division X Risk Register Department A Risk Register Department B Risk Register Division Y Risk Register Division Y Risk Register Department P Risk Register Department Q Risk Register I want all the datamembers to be named "Executive Risk Register", as follows: Division X Risk Register Executive Risk Register Department A Risk Register Department B Risk

SSAS cube Deployment

I was trying my hands on building Cubes using AdventureWorksOlap database. I successfully build what I was trying to do. Now my concern is that I want to deploy the cube to a server so that rest of the team members can use this cube as a datasource while generating their SSRS reports (might be some other tools). I have heard that SSAS does not allows Sql Authentication. So, 1) how will the members access the cube? 2) What authentication changes do I need to incorporate? 3) How can the other

Parent Child Relationships Between Measure Groups in SSAS

I am having a tough time figuring out how I am supposed to implement parent-child relationships between my measure groups in SSAS. Essentially I am just trying recreate a standard SQL join so that I can lookup measures in my Parent group while using keys in my Child group. For example, let's say I have the following dimensions: Parent Child (FK: ParentID) Time And I have the following measure groups ParentFact (Keys: ParentID, TimeID - Measures Related to the parent over time) ChildFact

Drilling through in ssas to a dimension attribute that has hierarchy disabled

I am using SQL Server 2008 R2, developing using BIDS. I have a very large cube, with many dimensions, and I am building a drill through action. The requirement is for a very broad drill through, which includes many fields that are in the fact table (and are not used in the cube, except for in drill through), and also many dimensions have attributes that are not hierarchy enabled such as textual info. I have created the dimensions, and added all the attributes required for the drill through as d

How to create sub partitions in measure groups of SSAS OLAP

I want to break up one of my partitions of my measure group that has 450 million rows into sub partitions to make processing and querying faster. I currently split my measure group using attr1 of dimension1. Is it possible to split each partition further based on a different attr2 of the same dimension? I know that I can write a SQL query to do this but what I want to know is how to create the slice hint such that SSAS knows to look at the sub partitions. I tried something like this in slice exp

If you have a parent-child dimension how can the power users easily create new level in the hierarchy? In SSAS is the posiblity to enable WriteBack and easy create new child and new sibling. Can you do this also from excel? I don't want that users to login to SSAS.

Can you create an SSAS Tabular measure with filter constraints?

I am trying to get my head around how to design the SSAS tabular model for a scenario where I have an attribute on a dimension that will modify an otherwise straight-forward measure on a related fact table. The fact table is currently at 155 million rows. The dimension has 6200 rows. The measure we need sums a unit volume fact, then multiplies that sum by a factor that belongs to the dimension. The context used for this measure has some constraints, then: the aggregation can never include multi

I'm looking to play around with various cube data to better understand it. I've also created a few of my own to play around with, but it's quite tedious to do, especially with saving the tables/views into the cube. Other than Adventure Works, are there any data sets that I can download to play around with? I've been having a hard time finding any of these via Google, MSDN, etc. I'm open to whatever!

Performance Implications of Calculated Members in SSAS

I'm wondering if there are any performance implications from adding a lot of calculated members to my cube. On one hand, it's nice to have things defined once, located centrally, tested, and available for use from any client which doesn't support MDX. On the other hand, some of these members I'm adding might not be used very frequently, so I could just inline them in the one or two reports that might need them. Aside from the clutter of having unnecessary members hanging around, should I keep

Ssas MDX calculation for count of sum within a range

SSAS 3 fact tables, but only 2 relate to a certain dimension

I have a cube with 3 fact tables and 20 + dimensions that relate easily to all 3 fact tables and everything works fine except for the fact that one of the dimensions (Warehouse) is only related to 2 of the 3 fact tables. My problem I guess is a display issue. When the user is viewing measures from all 3 fact tables then drags over the Warehouse dimension, it simply repeats the grand total of the measure in the 3rd fact table for every possible value of Warehouse. This certainly makes sense to me

How do you delete an SSAS cube?

According to this you can only delete Databases (or do I read it in an incorrect way?) even if the name of the page suggests cubes can be deleted.

But we have created several test solutions with their cubes that we would like to delete so users accessing the service don't see them. How can we delete

Ssas Convert string to decimal in Cube
