Updated: March 2, 2016
Creates a measure in a Tabular Model.
CREATE MEASURE Table_Name[Measure_Name] = DAX_Expression [; CREATE MEASURE ...n]
A valid string literal that provides the name of the table where the measure will be created.
A valid string literal that provides a measure name.
A valid DAX expression that returns a single scalar value.
The Measure_Name must be enclosed in square parenthesis.
The CREATE MEASURE statement can only be used inside of a MDX script definition; see MdxScript Element (ASSL).
You can also define a calculated member for use by a single query. To define a calculated member that is limited to a single query, you use the WITH clause in the SELECT statement. For more information, see Building Measures in MDX.
