EPM Function to Display all Base Members in MS Excel

Hi everyone,

I need to display all base members of a dimension in Microsoft Excel.

Tried =EPMContextMember(,"DIMENSION1","CALC=N") but don't think it is working as it reads my context, which is a parent node.

What EPM function should I use to do so?

Thanks!

    Hi Mohammad,

    I don't think that you can display the results of an EPM report in once cell.

    You could however concatenate the results as a second step.

    Hello,

    I think what you want is the EPMDIMENSIONPropertyValues formula. This formula generates a comma separates list (or Validation Dropdownbox) of all values in a property of a certain dimension. You can choose to set it on ID. Only drawback is that you cannot filter out the baselevels.

    However it is possible to create a property that replicates the id. If you fill tthat property only for baselevel members you can call that property in the EPMDIMENSIONPropertyValues function.

    Hi Mohamad,

    In addition to the EPMContextMember function, please also use the EPMAxisOverride function. Point the override function to the EPMContextMember function.

    Hope this helps.

    Vijay.

    Dear all,

    Allow me to rephrase my question.

    I have DIMENSION1 with five base members namely:

    MEMBER1

    MEMBER2

    MEMBER3

    MEMBER4

    MEMBER5

    I need to display these five base members in Cell A1 in Microsoft Excel.

    Cell: A1

    Cell Value: MEMBER1, MEMBER2, MEMBER3, MEMBER4, MEMBER5

    What EPM function should I use to do so?

    Thanks!

      Hi Mohamad,

      You can use the EPMDimensionPropertyValues function with ID as the property in the function parameter. It will display the IDs as comma separated list. However, the problem is that it will show all the IDs, and you cannot do any kind of filtering.

      Hope this helps.
