Remarks

All the measures of a measure group must be sourced from a single table. A measure group can define default bindings that can be overridden for each partition.

The MeasureGroup element defines details common to measure groups on regular cubes and virtual cubes. Separate subtypes define the details specific to each type.

The State property of a MeasureGroup has the following values:

  • FullyProcessed if all partitions are processed.

  • PartiallyProcessed if at least one partition is processed.

  • Unprocessed if no partitions are processed.

    The corresponding elements in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model are MeasureGroup and PerspectiveMeasureGroup.
