Hello Experts,
I have create a dimdate dimension on my SSAS database.
I get the wrong results from my SSAS database.
My dimdate dimension has the following hierarchy:
Year-->Month-->WeekOfYear-->Date

But when I pick the weekofyear filter from the reports then I get  
previous years data also.
For example when pick the 33th week of the year 2010 then I get
the 33th week sales of my fact table.

I have attached a screenshot and I am sure that you will easily
understand my problem when you look at this png file.

you need to provide another filter to pass the year parameter,

you should pass 33rd week of which year....

you should select 33rd week, 2010 year, then only the data would come properly. since 33rd week would be there in all the years, it is picking for all the years.

Thank you for your comment,
I already select Year --> Month --> Desired weekofyear. Because I have configured this report parameter and filter with this hierarchy.
Is this report parameter not enough to filter the correct data?

it is not enough. you only pass 33rd week as the value. 33rd week of which year is the question here?
in the query add another filter to accept the year also

Yes,
You are exactly right.. I have added a YEAR filter in order to get the proper values.
Thank you very much for your great comments
