TupleToStr (MDX)

Updated: 17 July 2006

Returns a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX)–formatted string that corresponds to a specified tuple.


TupleToStr(Tuple_Expression) 

Tuple_Expression

A valid Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression that returns a tuple.

This function is used to transfer a string-representation of a tuple to an external function for parsing. The string that is returned is enclosed in braces {} and each member, if more than one is expressly defined in the tuple, is separated by a comma.

Examples

The following example returns the string ([Date].[Calendar Year].&[2001],[Geography].[Geography].[Country].&[United States]) :

WITH MEMBER Measures.x AS TupleToStr 
   ( 
      ([Date].[Calendar Year].&[2001]
         , [Geography].[Geography].[Country].&[United States]
      )
   )   
SELECT Measures.x ON 0
FROM [Adventure Works]

The following example returns the same string as the previous example.

WITH SET s AS 
   {
      ([Date].[Calendar Year].&[2001],
         [Geography].[Geography].[Country].&[United States]
      ) 
   }
MEMBER Measures.x AS TupleToStr ( s.Item(0) )
SELECT Measures.x ON 0
FROM [Adventure Works]
