Example 3—Denying Access to a Single Member

In this example, the database role does not have access to cells for the Tax measure, but does have access to cells for all other measures. The following expression is the Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression that sets these permissions:

Not Measures.CurrentMember IS Measures.Tax

Based on these cell data permissions for this database role, a query on all cells returns the result set shown in the following table.

ms174500.note(en-US,SQL.90).gifImportant:
If a Microsoft Windows user or group belongs to multiple database roles, a query on all cells would first result in a dataset being generated based on each database role to which the user or group belongs. Then, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) would combine all these datasets into one dataset, and return that combined dataset to the user or group.
