Hi. Use to belong to Experts-Exchange for years and now have re-subscribed.
I am trying to create a calculated measure in a cube for an average.

What I want it to do is first determine if the count of services is 0 then 0
else divide the total turn around days by the count of services. My turn around time
is based on certain statuses.  I included a field in my status table to indicate if it is one of the statuses that the turn around time is calculated on.

WITH MEMBER [Measures].[AverageTurnAroundTime] AS
 
      [Measures].[Turn Around Days]/[Measures].[SAR Services]
      select [Measures].[AverageTurnAroundTime] on columns
      from [SAR Management]
      where [Sar Status Code].[Turn Around Time Indicator] = 1

Can't help you with any SSAS aspects of this question, but raw T-SQL would be <air code>..
SELECT CASE 
    WHEN COALESCE(COUNT(services),0) > 0 THEN 0 
    ELSE SUM(Turn around days) / CAST(COUNT(Services) as numeric(19,4))  END as column_name
FROM [SAR Management]
WHERE [Sar Status Code].[Turn Around Time Indicator] = 1 

Open in new window

btw the CAST..as Numeric is so that the result has decimal values.

Appreciate the help, jimhorn! Still need the solution for the cube average though. Changed the logic above to read  

case when COALESCE(COUNT(services),0) = 0 THEN 0 rather than > 0.

Now I just have to figure out how that code gets modified to MDX. Thanks

Yep.  I'll back away gracefully now to encourage SQL - SSAS experts to respond.

We were able to find the answer in house. I am posting the solution. I am awarding jimhorn points for helping with the divide by zero logic. Thanks.

 
WITH MEMBER [Measures].[AverageTurnAroundDays] AS
IIF([Measures].[Turn Around Days]= 0,0,[Measures].[Turn Around Days]/[Measures].[SAR Services])
select {[Measures].[Turn Around Days],[Measures].[SAR Services],[Measures].[AverageTurnAroundDays] } ON COLUMNS,
         [Initial Submit Date].[Month].&[2013-10-01T00:00:00]ON ROWS
from [SAR Management]
where [Sar Status Code].[Turn Around Time Indicator].&[1]

btw I've noticed that there's not a lot of us SSIS experts on EE, and probably fewer SSAS experts, so you can probably score a lot of points by answering questions here.
