DataMember (PEL)

This function returns the system-generated data member that is associated with a member of a dimension.



  • Member_Expression
    A valid PerformancePoint Expression Language (PEL) expression that returns a member

Return value

This function operates on members in any hierarchy.


Typically, the function is used on nonleaf members in a hierarchy. If Member_Expression is a leaf member, or if Member_Expression is a nonleaf member that does not have an associated data member, this function returns Member_Expression.

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.
