    Combining MDX queries on KPIs

    Here is what I am trying to accomplish. My code could be modified to use the two KPIs found in the Adventure Works Analysis Cube.

    I am working with SQL Server 2008

    I have created a set of KPIs in SSAS that I would like to display in a table/matrix in SSRS.
    The 4 KPIs are:
    - Units Sold
    - Total PVR
    - Front PVR
    - Back PVR

    I would like to show all 4 in a table/matrix for a given store something like:

    Store Name KPI Name KPI Value KPI Goal KPI Status
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Store 1 Units Sold 100 120 -1
    Total PVR 2000 1900 1
    Front PVR 400 300 1
    Back PVR 1500 1700 -1

    Store 2 Units Sold 100 120 -1
    Total PVR 2000 1900 1
    Front PVR 400 300 1
    Back PVR 1500 1700 -1

    I have an MDX query to pull the values I want for one KPI and in TSQL I would union the results of the first query with a similar query for each of the other KPIs, but I can't seem to find a way to do this in MDX.

    Here is my query for one KPI:

    Code:
    Code:
      WITH 
    		MEMBER [KPI Name] AS "New Units Sold"
    		MEMBER [KPI Value] As KPIValue("Units_Sold")
    		MEMBER [KPI Goal] AS KPIGoal("Units_Sold")
    		MEMBER [KPI Status] AS KPIStatus("Units_Sold")
    		MEMBER [KPI Trend] As KPITrend("Units_Sold")
      SELECT 
    	NON EMPTY 
    		{ 
    		  [KPI Name],
    		  [KPI Value], 
    		  [KPI Goal], 
    		  [KPI Status], 
    		  [KPI Trend]		  
    		} ON COLUMNS,
    	FILTER 
    		(
    			[Dms Ws Group Accounts].[Ws Group Id].[Ws Group Id].MEMBERS,
    			NOT(ISEMPTY(KPIValue("Units_Sold")))
    		) DIMENSION PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION, MEMBER_UNIQUE_NAME ON ROWS
    	FROM [DSP Prototype Cube] 
    	WHERE
    		(
    			[SaleType].[Saletype].[Saletype].&[new],
    			[Time].[Month].&[2009-03-01T00:00:00]
    		)
    	CELL PROPERTIES VALUE, BACK_COLOR, FORE_COLOR, FORMATTED_VALUE, FORMAT_STRING, FONT_NAME, FONT_SIZE, FONT_FLAGS
    Please Help. And if someone knows how to query the name of the KPI rather than hard coding it I would appreciate that very much also.

    Thank you,
    Jonathan

    "Hard coding" the KPI?

    Hi:

    QUOTE: "... if someone knows how to query the name of the KPI rather than hard coding it I would appreciate that very much also."

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "rather than hard coding" it - do you mean querying the KPI directly, rather than creating a calculated member to contain the KPI, which you next query via the CM? Wouldn't something like this work (it returns the correct data from the Adventure Works AS DB)?

    SELECT
    {
    KPIValue("Net Income"),
    KPIGoal("Net Income"),
    KPIStatus("Net Income"),
    KPITrend("Net Income")
    } ON AXIS(0),

    {[Date].[Calendar].[Calendar Year].MEMBERS} ON AXIS(1)

    FROM
    [Adventure Works]

    HTH,

    Bill

    What I mean by
    QUOTE: "... if someone knows how to query the name of the KPI rather than hard coding it I would appreciate that very much also."

    Is that in the query I posted there is a Calculated Member containing the name of the KPI:

    MEMBER [KPI Name] AS "New Units Sold"

    Can the string "New Units Sold" be queried from the cube rather than hard coded in the MEMBER statement?

    If I understand the question ...

    If the KPI with that name exists in the cube, can you not retrieve it using something like this?

    KPIValue("New Units Sold")

    Like the working example I show in my last response? Using this syntax, you would be asking for "the value of the New Units Sold KPI ..."

    Sorry if I'm missing something ...

    Bill
