Using Dimension, Hierarchy, and Level Functions

 

Updated: March 2, 2016

Dimension, hierarchy, and level functions are useful for traversing the multidimensional structures found in Analysis Services. Typically, you use such functions in conjunction with other functions to obtain information about the members of a dimension, hierarchy, or level.

The following example shows how to use the .Dimension, .Hierarchy, and .Level functions:

WITH

MEMBER MEASURES.DIMENSIONNAME AS [Date].[Calendar].CURRENTMEMBER.DIMENSION.NAME

MEMBER MEASURES.HIERARCHYNAME AS [Date].[Calendar].CURRENTMEMBER.HIERARCHY.NAME

MEMBER MEASURES.LEVELNAME AS [Date].[Calendar].LEVEL.NAME

SELECT

{MEASURES.DIMENSIONNAME, MEASURES.HIERARCHYNAME, MEASURES.LEVELNAME}

ON Columns,

[Date].[Calendar].MEMBERS

ON Rows
