How do people handle semi-additive measures with SSAS Standard edition? (other than switching to Enterprise edition). I'm using SSAS 2008 R2 (but it applies to 2005 & 2008 as well).

If you try to set a measure to 'Last non-empty value', you get the 'Error 31 Errors related to feature availability and configuration: The 'Semi-additive measures' feature is not included in the '64 Bit Standard Edition' SKU.' error when trying to deploy to a SSAS standard edition.

Example:
FactCompany has a monthly granularity, by company and an inventory count of number of trucks. In creating the measure, I want the usage to be the 'Last non-empty value'. Unfortunately this isn't an option supported by the Standard edition. I can change it to Sum so that the measure group will process, but the total number of trucks for a year really isn't the sum of all of the months, but the last value.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Rob

semi addictive is only available in enterprise edition...

no luck in standard

you can see if you can replicate what you trying to do in calculation using MDX (if you are just doing simple division.. for example)...

anything more complex (like average and stuff) you can calculate the numerator / denominator in the fact table first in SQL.. and do the division in the cube

even more complex than you are probably out of luck
