Hello,

I have a SSAS cube with a dimension "PRODUCT DIMENSION".  Within this dimension, I would like the "PRODUCT" attribute to always sort according to the "PRODUCT KEY" attribute.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

Select the Product attribute and change the OrderBy property to "Key".

(This assumes that your "PRODUCT KEY" attribute is the dimension key.  If it's not, you should really consider renaming it :) )
