Hi everyone,

I have wriiten 2 calculated measures for my cube..
my cal measures are:

create member [Measures].[A]

create member [Measures].

but results are different from database to cube..
those are...

[b]below result is from DB:

avgsaleslatency avgResplatency latency days sales responses
Null Null 0 Null Null
15 Null 15 1 Null
Null 23 23 Null 1

cube result

latencydays sales responses avgsaleslatency avgresplatency
38 1 1 38 38

but as aggregate is sum for latencydays it showing the results as below:

But Here what the expected result is :

avgsaleslatency avgresponseLatency
15 23

can anybody correct me, if my measure are wrong or if there is any other way to fix it..

Thanks in advance,

It's a little hard to tell without knowing your data structure but it seems as if your measure called "LatencyDays" needs to be split via a dimension.
It looks as if what your cube is reporting is correct in that it's summing up ALL of your latency days (15+23=38) without the context of a dimensional member to slice it by.

So, say you had a dimension that was joined to whatever measure group your LatencyDays measure is in, let's call it LatencyType and assume it has one attribute called LatencyType. Then your calculated measure would look like this:
MEMBER [Measures].[SalesLatency]
SUM([LatencyType].[LatencyType].&[Sales], [Measures].[LatencyDays])

Hope this helps
