Parent (Command Interface)

SQL Server 2000

Parent (Command Interface)

  New Information - SQL Server 2000 SP3.

The Parent property of the Command interface contains a reference to the parent MDStore object of which this object is a child.

Applies To




Data Type





The class of the parent object depends on the class of the command object.

Important  This property returns Nothing if the command object has a ClassType property value of clsRoleCommand and is associated with a mining model role. Mining models do not implement the MDStore interface and cannot be returned by this property.

Command object class Parent object class
clsDatabaseCommand clsDatabase
clsCubeCommand clsCube
clsRoleCommand clsCube


The following example creates a cube command and assigns it to the first cube in the MDStores collection of the FoodMart 2000 database. It then prints some of the properties of the parent object by using the Parent property of the cube command object.

Dim dsoServer As New DSO.Server
Dim dsoDB As DSO.MDStore
Dim dsoCube As DSO.MDStore
Dim dsoDBCmd As DSO.Command
Dim dsoCubeCmd As DSO.Command

' Connect to the Analysis server.
    dsoServer.Connect "LocalHost"

' Get a reference to the FoodMart 2000 database.
    Set dsoDB = dsoServer.MDStores("FoodMart 2000")

' Get the first cube in the database's collection.
    Set dsoCube = dsoDB.MDStores(1)
    Debug.Print "Cube.Name = " & dsoCube.Name

' Add the command to the cube's collection.
    Set dsoCubeCmd = dsoCube.Commands.AddNew("TempCommand")
    Debug.Print "Cube.Commands(""TempCommand"").Name =" & _

' Print the properties of the command's 
' Parent object.
    Debug.Print "   .Parent properties" & vbCrLf & _
        "   -----------"
    Debug.Print "   TypeName(dsoCubeCmd.Parent) = " & _
    If dsoCubeCmd.Parent.ClassType = clsCube Then
        Debug.Print "   .ClassType = clsCube"
        Debug.Print "This line should never be executed."
    End If
    Debug.Print "   .Description = " & dsoCubeCmd.Parent.Description
    Debug.Print "   .Name = " & dsoCubeCmd.Parent.Name

    dsoCube.Commands.Remove ("TempCommand")
