Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) reserves certain keywords for its exclusive use. These keywords cannot be used anywhere in Data Mining Extensions (DMX) statements except in the positions that Analysis Services defines in the DMX language reference. These restricted DMX keywords include the following members:
All data definition statements listed in the topic, DMX Data Definition Statements.
All data mining query functions listed in the topic, DMX Function Reference.
All operators listed in the topic, DMX Operator Reference.
Keywords that are defined in the Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query language and are included as part of a DMX statement.
Keywords that are defined in the OLE DB for Data Mining specification and are included as part of a DMX statement.
When you name objects in a database, we recommend that you use a naming convention that avoids using reserved keywords.
If your database does contain names that match reserved keywords, you must use delimited identifiers when you refer to those objects. For more information, see Identifiers (DMX).
