A measure represents the data within a fact table that is being organized and aggregated by the cube.
In ADOMD.NET, the represents the metadata for a measure within a cube. A measure is not explicitly identified in a cellset, because a measure is treated as a member for querying purposes and is represented by a within the Measures collection of a CubeDef.
