I have a drop down parameter by date --- is there any way to make the list go in reverse order by date?

Each parameter should have its own data set. If you select your date parameter in the Dataset dropdown (in Data view), you should be able to add an ORDER BY clause as shown in the image.

What I am doing is a little different because I am using SSAS cubes ... but I should be able to do that in the MDX. I will try

Simone BCommented:
Yes, it will be the same thing. You need to specify the order in your parameter dataset. Sorry, I'm not an MDX-pert. The code is different, but the theory is the same. I'll poke around and see if I can find any examples.

Ordering in MDX is not really comparable to T-SQL.  But it can be done nevertheless!  What you need to use is the ORDER() function.

Hace a look at the following article for some more examples besides the ones on MSDN: Ordering a Dimension Hierarchy in MDX

This is my MDX ..... how would i order by YearAndMonth (not currently a field in this query).
