OR (MDX)

Performs a logical disjunction on two numeric expressions.

Syntax


Expression1 OR Expression2   

Parameters

Expression1
A valid Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) expression that returns a numeric value.

Expression2
A valid MDX expression that returns a numeric value.

Return Value

A Boolean value that returns true if either or both arguments evaluate to true; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The OR operator treats both arguments as Boolean values (zero, 0, as false; otherwise, true) before the operator performs the logical disjunction. The following table illustrates how the OR operator performs the logical disjunction.
