I try to explain my problem.
I use SSAS 2008 R2 and i have a Multidimensional Cube called SALES.
In this cube i have dimensions and measures.
Now i try to simplify the design of it and explain what is my question...
I have a dimension STORES wtih all stores of my company
I have a dimension CALENDAR with all time periods
I have a dimension PRODUCT CATEGORY with 3 levels (Parent Child Dimension)
1) Level 1
2) Level 2
3) Level 3
I have a measure called SALES AMOUNT (It sum all sales amount) depending on a selection .
I created a new calculated measure that we can call 'SALES AMOUNT CUSTOMED'
This measure need to sum SALES AMOUNT depending on a selection of levels of PRODUCT CATEGORY dimension...and depending on that i need to subtract tha sales amount of a certain member of Dimension STORES.
I post here the MDX Expression of SALES AMOUNT CUSTOMED' calculated measure
[b]CASE LEFT([Product Category].[Product Category].CURRENTMEMBER.Name,1)
WHEN 'E' THEN ([Measures].[SALES AMOUNT] - [Measures].[SALES AMOUNT ONLY STORE CO16])
WHEN 'M' THEN ([Measures].[SALES AMOUNT] - [Measures].[SALES AMOUNT ONLY STORE CO11])
WHEN 'X' THEN ([Measures].[SALES AMOUNT])
WHEN 'I' THEN ([Measures].[SALES AMOUNT])
WHEN 'A' THEN ([Measures].[SALES AMOUNT])
WHEN 'Z' THEN ([Measures].[SALES AMOUNT])
ELSE ([Measures].[SALES AMOUNT] - [Measures].[SALES AMOUNT ONLY STORE CO16] - [Measures].[SALES AMOUNT ONLY STORE CO11])
END[/b]
[b]This measure works fine !!!![/b]
[b] BUT MY PROBLEM is when i browse my cube with Excel [/b](2010 or 2013 no differences)
Excel [b]does not calculate GRAND TOTAL correctly about my SALES AMOUNT CUSTOMED' calculated measure[/b]Here is what happen...
[b]PRODUCT CATEGORY ---- SALES AMOUNT ---- SALES AMOUNT CUSTOMED
LEVEL 1 - LEVEL 2 - LEVEL 3[/b]
E EE EE04 100 90
E EE EE05 200 100
E EE EE06 300 200
E EE EE07 400 300
==== ====
[b]TOTAL --E-- [/b]1000 690 [b](Sub Total is correct !!!)[/b]
M MM MM01 10 9
M MM MM03 70 60
==== ====
TOTAL --M-- 80 69 [b] (Sub Total is correct !!!)[/b]
GRAND TOTAL 1080 [b]1080 [b](IT IS WRONG WHY !!!)[/[/b]b] (1000 + 80 correct) [b](Grand Total of Calculated Measure It should be 690 + 69 = 759 )[/b]
Why Excel does that ???
It seems it does error calculating wrong Total about only calculated measure ...
How can i solve that problem ???
With Excel or with a different MDX Expression ???????????
Thanks in advance for your replies...

I have all priviligies and i have the same problem with Excel and SQLSRVER MANAGEMENT STUDIO.
I read it is a common problem...visualizing totals with calculated members.
The solution i think it is study SCOPE ASSIGNMENTS and try something like this...
I do not know how to...but if i will be able to ...i will post solution.

It could have something to do with visual totals. Are you browsing as an admin or under a restricted role?Thu, 07 Nov 2013 08:37:44 GMTPB_BI
