InfoCube Unions in MDX



We are looking to use MDX queries to make iView reports which combine data from different InfoCubes (provided that we don’t have a BI MultiProvider available and we do not want to develop one in BI). For example one cube contains “number of items per month” another cubes displays “total cost of items per month” (the dimension is the top aggregate level – one intersection per month, so the cubes have a one to one relationship, and a common time characteristic). The cubes are not technically related in any way. For various reasons we can not make any changes to BI/BW (i.e. custom cubes, multi-providers etc). We believe the optimum solution would be to use MDX query editing, as this keeps the manipulation contained, encapsulated and consistent inside an iView. Any suggested code or other ideas greatly appreciated (unusual and left field is fine!).
