DataMember (MDX)

APPLIES TO:yesSQL Server Analysis ServicesnoAzure Analysis Services

Returns the system-generated data member that is associated with a nonleaf member of a dimension.




A valid Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression that returns a member.


This function operates on nonleaf members in any hierarchy and can be used by the UPDATE CUBE Statement (MDX) command to writeback data to a nonleaf member directly, rather than to the leaf member's descendants.


Returns the specified member if the specified member is a leaf member, or if the nonleaf member does not have an associated data member.


The following example uses the DataMember function in a calculated measure to show the sales quota for each individual employee:

WITH MEMBER measures.InvidualQuota AS   
([Employee].[Employees].currentmember.datamember, [Measures].[Sales Amount Quota])  
SELECT {[Measures].[Sales Amount Quota],[Measures].InvidualQuota} ON COLUMNS,  
[Employee].[Employees].MEMBERS ON ROWS  
FROM [Adventure Works]
