Child elements Required Analysis Services Scripting Language (ASSL) elements. Specified by listing the ID elements of the object and its ancestors (excluding the Server object.) For example, the following Object element identifies a partition:

<Object><br /><br />Adventure Works DW Multidimensional 2012

<CubeID>Adventure Works</CubeID><br /><br />Internet Sales
