Error with EPMMemberProperty Function

Hi Experts,

I am facing an error when I am using EPMMemberproperty function in my report for display. In my requirement I have 2 dimensions Customer and Customer sold to party for which I have to display their properties in the report.

The error I face is when both ID's of the 2 dimensions are same i.e for e.g both member ID as "111", the function gives error #AmbiguousMemberID, and when I display both ID & description it gives another error as #Error- Invalid Member name "111".

I tried using EPMMemeberID in the EPMMemberProperty function, but it also doesnt seem to work. It also gives error. I have also tick marked the option for "Use EPMMemberID in EPM functions" from the "User Options". Also tried using EPMOlapMember, but no luck.

Attaching the screenshots of the error.

Currently I am using EPM SP 16 patch 0 .NET framework 4.0.

    Hi Priyanka,

    Use full unique member name in the formula (described in help!):

    = EPMMemberProperty("ConName","[DIMNAME].[HIRNAME].["&C1&"]","PROPERTY")

    Where in C1 you have short member id

    = EPMMemberProperty(,"[DIMENSION_NAME].[PARENTH1].["&A2&"]","DESCRIPTION")

    Replacce DIMENSION_NAME with your dimensison e.g. COMPANY

    Replae A2 with your cell where Member ID is.

    Should work like a charm
