Hi,

I have three role-playing dimensions in my sales fact table (order date, transaction date and posted date). Is there a way to create one calculation, say for YTD sales, that can be used no matter which date you pick?

I've seen blogs referencing using the SCOPE or LINKMEMBER commands or even using a time calculation reference dimensions but nothing really clear and helpful to a MDX newbie like myself.

Thanks.
