CUBEVALUE function  with multiple dimension members

I'm using Excel 2007 to query a cube in SSAS.
I need to get the total of a measure, for a subset of Dimension members.

Say that the measure is TotalSales, and there's a Salesman dimension with 3 members :Fred, George and Jim.

I need the combined  total sales for Fred and George .
The function for getting the total sales for one salesman is:-

=CUBEVALUE("jago","[TotalSales]","[Salesman].&[Fred]")

But when I try to add another salesman, I get #NA

=CUBEVALUE("jago","[TotalSales]","{([Salesman].&[Fred]),([Salesman].&[George])}")

Can anyone help?

Try this:

=CUBEVALUE("jago","[TotalSales]",CUBESET("jago", "{[Salesman].&[Fred],[Salesman].&[George]}"))

Hi agandau:,

Do you have an idea on how to use the same function when we are referring to two members of the same hierarchy? I am  facing a #N/A error when I try to use the cubeset formula on two members of the same hierachy.

=CUBEVALUE("CubeConnection","[Measures].[Amount]",CUBESET("CubeConnection","{[Account Hierarchy].[Account Hierarchy].&[800000],[Account Hierarchy].[Account Hierarchy].&[900000]}"))
