Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that contains the member name of the Member.




In Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS), member names can be derived from a column in the dimension table other than the column that supplies member keys for a given level. Although member keys must be unique within a level, member names can be changed in a changing dimension, and they are not necessarily unique within a dimension or hierarchy. You can reference a member by either its member name or its member key. Using the member key ensures precise member identification in these cases. The ampersand (&) character is used in Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) to differentiate a member key from a member name, as shown in the following example:

[Time].[Time].[2nd half].&[Q4]

In this case, the member key of the fourth quarter member, Q4, is used.

The Name property returns the member name of the Member. To get the member key of a Member, use the UniqueName property.
