MDX Syntax Conventions (MDX)


Updated: March 2, 2016

The diagrams for Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) syntax in the MDX Language Reference use these conventions.

italicIndicates user-supplied arguments of MDX syntax.
| (vertical bar)Separates syntax items within brackets or braces. You can select only one of the items.
[ ] (brackets)Indicates optional syntax items. Do not type the brackets.
[,] ...nIndicates that the preceding item can be repeated any number of times. The items are sometimes separated by commas.
<label> ::=Indicates the name for a block of syntax. This convention is used to group and label portions of lengthy syntax or a unit of syntax that can be used in more than one place within a statement. Each location in which the block of syntax can be used is indicated with the label enclosed in angle brackets: <label>.
