Indicates comment text that is provided by the user.


/* Comment_Text */      


The string that contains the text of the comment.


The server does not evaluate the text between the comment characters, /* and */. Comments can be inserted on a separate line or within a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) statement. Multiple-line comments must be indicated by /* and */.

There is no maximum length for comments. Comments can be nested; for example, /* Test /*Comment*/ Text*/ is an example of a nested comment.


The following example demonstrates the use of this operator.

/* This member returns the gross profit margin for product types  
  and reseller types crossjoined by year. */  
    [Date].[Calendar].[Calendar Year].Members *  
    [Reseller].[Reseller Type].Children ON 0,  
    [Product].[Category].[Category].Members ON 1  
FROM /* Select from the Adventure Works cube. */  
    [Adventure Works]  
    [Measures].[Gross Profit Margin]
