Remarks

AttributeBinding and CubeAttributeBinding elements in which the Type property is set to either Key or Translation can be bound to an attribute that is in turn bound to a collection of columns in the data source view. The value of the Ordinal element determines to which column the AttributeBinding or CubeAttributeBinding refers in that collection.

The elements that correspond to the parents of Ordinal in the Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model are AttributeBinding and CubeAttributeBinding.
