DisplayFolder Element (ASSL)

Specifies the folder in which to list the parent element. Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services applications for developers and administrators may support the use of display folders to categorize multiple elements visually.

<CalculationProperty> <!-- or Hierarchy, Kpi, Measure, Translation -->



Data type and length


Default value



0-1: Optional element that can occur once and only once.



Parent elements

CalculationProperty, Hierarchy, Kpi, Measure, Translation

Child elements


In larger cubes, there may be hundreds of measures and hierarchies. The DisplayFolder property defines user appearance on the client. The value of the DisplayFolder property can contain any one of the following options:

  • Be empty, denoting that the measure does not belong to a folder.

  • Contain a single folder name, denoting that the measure should be rendered as belonging to a folder with the same name.

  • Contain multiple folder names separated by a backslash (\), denoting an embedded folder hierarchy.

The DisplayFolder property applies to CalculationProperty elements only if the value of CalculationType is set to Member.

The elements that correspond to the parents of DisplayFolder in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model are CalculationProperty, Hierarchy, Kpi, Measure, and Translation.
