MDX Query on SQL 2008 SSRS

For the MDX query below,

"FROM ( SELECT ( STRTOSET(@DIMDATEYearGroup, CONSTRAINED) ) ON COLUMNS"

Is it similar to the where query in TSQL, what the use of STROSET & CONSTRAINED ? The condition defined doesn't need to be a selection list in the query,  correct ?

Inaddition, what does the ON COLUMN mean ?

SELECT
NON EMPTY { [Measures].[Sales Last Year YTD], [Measures].[Sales YTD],[Measures].[Budget YTD] } ON COLUMNS,
NON EMPTY { ([DIM DATE].[Year Group].[Month].ALLMEMBERS ) } DIMENSION PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION, MEMBER_UNIQUE_NAME ON ROWS
FROM ( SELECT ( STRTOSET(@DIMDATEYearGroup, CONSTRAINED) ) ON COLUMNS FROM [MyCube])
CELL PROPERTIES VALUE, BACK_COLOR, FORE_COLOR, FORMATTED_VALUE, FORMAT_STRING, FONT_NAME, FONT_SIZE, FONT_FLAGS

HI,

On Column means that those fields will be on columns site if you consider the output as matrix.

Where clause is somewhat different in MDX
in SQL you assign a column or value to the where clause but in MDX

WHERE ({[Order Type].[Order Type].&[1],
        [Order Type].[Order Type].&[5],
        [Order Type].[Order Type].&[6]},
       [Customers].[Customers].&[1012])

Columns itself has assigned values

STRTOSET will prepare a set of member as per the condition

SELECT
{ [Measures].[Customer Count] } ON COLUMNS,
STRTOSET('[Customer].[Customer Geography].[Country].Members') ON ROWS
FROM
[Adventure Works]
Output :-
MDX StrToSet Function
