This function returns the children of a specified member.



  • Member_Expression
    A valid PerformancePoint Expression Language expression that returns a member.

Return values

This function returns a MemberSet that contains the children of Member_Expression. If applied to a leaf member, the returned MemberSet is empty.


This function is defined as Member_Expression.Descendants(1). For detailed reference information, see Descendants (PEL).

The PEL compiler can always generate SQL code for this function.

PEL cannot be used to reference user-created member views in non-time dimensions. To write a business rule that references a member view in a non-time dimension, use a native Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) implementation.
