Posted on 2010-09-10

Hello Experts,
I have created a hierarchy on my DimDate dimension. And how can I apply
WeekOfYear hierarchy attribute to my SSRS report?

When I try to apply it then I get message such as:
"aggregate functions cannot be used in dataset filters or data region filters"

Any idea?

"how can I apply WeekOfYear hierarchy attribute to my SSRS report?"

Could you clarify what you are trying to achieve? Do you want to create parameter which will show week of the year?

Have you created the parameter during data set creation (parameter text box) or manually?

If you want date hierarchy (tree filter) then I don't think you need to select date/time format when working with OLAP. I think Date/Time would only be used when you want user to pick the date from the calendar.

Let me know if changing data type resolves the issue.
