Hi there, I'm trying to do some comparision from my cube to the current reporting system (SAP).

i'm  trying to get a count of a column for a measure group. the name of the column is Forwarded.

The value in the fact table is either 1 or 0. I only really care about the rows that have a value of 1. I can't see how to change this in the cube editor. i can see how to reformat the measure and all that. but i just want to make sure that i'm counting only the necesary rows. My values are coming ever so slightly different than what is in production, i wonder if this is the reason why, i nver explicitly tell the cube to filter out the 1's...

Hi,

If your values are either 1 or 0, then surely the SUM (default aggregation) of the measure will return the correct value.
If not, then do you have any traceaility between your production system and your cube environemnt? Are you sure you're importing all rows correctly?

Tim




p.s. zone should be changed to OLAP
