Hello Folks,
I am trying to use count of a dimension member as measure.
My purpose is to count the distinct StoreID sales for the specified week of year. I have created a calculated member named StoreCount. And the formula of this calculated member is.



Count(CrossJoin({[Measures].[Sale Unit]}, [Dim Warehouses MAX].Members), ExcludeEmpty)




This calculation show the total count of the Sale Unit measure. But I have filtered this resultset for the week 17. And it still shows the all date range.

Any idea?

Hi,

Your calculation makes no reference to your date dimension and so will not be fitered by it.

If the query you want to include the calculation in is doing something like:

nonempty( [Dim Warehouses MAX].Members, [Measures].[Sale Unit]) on rows

i.e. showing only those stores that have sales (for a week), then you should be able to just use:


Count(Existing([Dim Warehouses MAX].Members))

as your calculation. Note that this will only work if you include [Dim Warehouses MAX] in the crossjoin in your main query (otherwise there is no set of [Dim Warehouses MAX] to iterate over and you'll get the count of all stores in the dimension).
