EPMMEMBERPROPERTY for hierarchies

My ACCOUNTS dimension has multiple hierarchies, PARENTH1, PARENTH2, PARENTH3, PARENTH4.

My question is in regards to how the EPMMEMBERPROPERTY formula should work to return the value for these hierarchies for an ACCOUNT.

If the ACCOUNT in question (420010) has a value in PARENTH1 of "RENTAL_REV" and a value in PARENTH3 of "MGMT_REV" for instance, this is the result I get for the two formulas below:

=EPMMEMBERPROPERTY(, 420010, "PARENTH1") Result is RENTAL_REV

=EPMMEMBERPROPERTY(, 420010, "PARENTH3") Result is MGMT_REV

Both are the results I expected.

However, if instead of having 420010 in the formula itself and I instead referenced a cell in my workbook instead, I get different results (the same account, 420010, is in cell A2 within an EPM report):

=EPMMEMBERPROPERTY(, A2, "PARENTH1") Result is RENTAL_REV

=EPMMEMBERPROPERTY(, A2, "PARENTH3") Result is "The member requested does not exist in the specified hierarchy"

Any thoughts on why the second example that references a cell wouldn't return the same results for PARENTH3?

Thanks in advance.

    Then instead of A2 you have to get MEMBER ID from A2:

    EPMMemberProperty(,A2,"ID")

    Sorry, but not clear what do you have in A2! May be EPMOlapMemberO formula?

    Please post a report screenshot with formulas visible.

    P.S. Formulas in your question are not real formulas copied from report!
