Updated: 12 December 2006

Returns the minimum value of a numeric expression that is evaluated over a set.


Min( Set_Expression [ , Numeric_Expression ] )

Set_Expression

A valid Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression that returns a set.

Numeric_Expression

A valid numeric expression that is typically a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression of cell coordinates that return a number.

If a numeric expression is specified, the specified numeric expression is evaluated across the set and then returns the minimum value from that evaluation. If a numeric expression is not specified, the specified set is evaluated in the current context of the members of the set and then returns the minimum value from that evaluation.
