I am using Visual Studio 2008 Analysis Services and processing the AdventureWorks database to create and process a cube. One of my measures is the Sales Amount field from the FactInternetSales table. When I click and drag that field onto an otherwise blank crosstab, my value is less than 29358677.2206503, which I know it should be. The study video I'm following shows that value, as do I when independently verifying the value by writing a view against the table.
I suspect that when the measure is defined, something in the SQL statement puts a filter on the field, resulting in a value that is too small. I do not know how to test this hypothesis. Please help.
Thank you, ~Peter Ferber
