Set_Expression - Set_Expression  

Parameters

Set_Expression

The - (Except) operator is functionally equivalent to the Except function.

The following example demonstrates the use of this operator:

// This query shows the quantity of orders for all product categories  
// with the exception of Components.  
SELECT   
   [Measures].[Order Quantity] ON COLUMNS,  
   [Product].[Product Categories].[All].Children   
   - [Product].[Product Categories].[Components] ON ROWS  
FROM  
    [Adventure Works]
