As near as I can tell from documentation, the Descendants() function returns a set.

This returns a set of 1,500+ product names.
SELECT
{ } ON COLUMNS,
{Descendants([Product].CurrentMember, [Product].[Product Name])} ON ROWS
FROM [Sales and Warehouse];


Then why doesn't this return the same set of 1,500+ product names? I only get the one item "Set Of Products".
WITH MEMBER [Set Of Products] AS
{ Descendants([Product].CurrentMember, [Product].[Product Name]) }
SELECT
{ } ON COLUMNS,
{ ([Set Of Products])} ON ROWS
FROM [Sales and Warehouse]


And if I try using StrToSet, it complains that it isn't a set (The function expects a tuple set expression for the 1 argument. A string or numeric expression was used.)
WITH MEMBER [Set Of Products] AS
{ Descendants([Product].CurrentMember, [Product].[Product Name]) }
SELECT
{ } ON COLUMNS,
{ SetToStr(( [Set Of Products] ))} ON ROWS
FROM [Sales and Warehouse]


So, my calculated measure must not be a set.

Can someone shed some light?

Thanks,
Rob

A member is one thing - one product or the sum/avg of a set of products

You need to define your set as a set as below - a set being a collection of members

WITH Set [Set Of Products] AS { Descendants([Product].CurrentMember, [Product].[Product Name]) }SELECT { } ON COLUMNS, { ([Set Of Products])} ON ROWSFROM [Sales and Warehouse]



Make sense?
