Arguments

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

Remarks

The Value function returns the value of the specified member as a string. The Value argument is optional because the value of a member is the default property of a member, and is value that is returned for a member if no other value is specified. For more information about properties of members, see Intrinsic Member Properties (MDX) and User-Defined Member Properties (MDX).

Examples

The following example returns the value of a member as well explicitly returning the name of the member.

WITH MEMBER [Date].[Calendar].NumericValue as [Date].[Calendar].[July 1, 2001].Value  
MEMBER [Date].[Calendar].MemberName AS [Date].[Calendar].[July 1, 2001].Name  

SELECT {[Date].[Calendar].NumericValue, [Date].[Calendar].MemberName} ON 0  
from [Adventure Works]
