  • Mdx:


    The Mdx: or Mdx Colon feature allows you to easily combine snippets of Mdx with your existing XLCubed Grids and other report objects.

    The Mdx: statement could be a fixed piece of text, or created by using an Excel formula.

    You can use this to create members or sets depending on your requirements.


    The Mdx: statement is made up of two or three parts.

    Part Optional? Description
    Mdx: or MdxSet: No Select based on whether your mdx snippet returns a single member or a set of members.
    Caption:= Yes Puts a user friendly caption against the member when it is returned.
    Mdx No The Mdx snippet to run.


    Valid examples you be:

    • Mdx:nextYear:=[Date].[Calendar].[Calendar Year].&[2002].NextMember
    • Mdxset:{[Date].[Calendar].[Calendar Year].&[2001]:[Date].[Calendar].[Calendar Year].&[2003]}

    In these examples the Mdx: statement is made using other Excel references, so that when these change the grid will also be updated.
