DataMember (MDX)

Updated: 17 July 2006

Returns the system-generated data member that is associated with a nonleaf member of a dimension.



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

This function operates on nonleaf members in any hierarchy and can be used by the UPDATE CUBE Statement (MDX) command to writeback data to a nonleaf member directly, rather than to the leaf member's descendants.

Returns the specified member if the specified member is a leaf member, or if the nonleaf member does not have an associated data member.
